my guess would be the person who owned it before had a winter wheel set that came with those lugs and used them instead of the bmw lugs-- did you check the trunk/glovebox for something like this:

you can probably find it locally-- i recommend buying more than one, when used with impact tools, they sometimes split.
Thanks for your Help. Ive checked everywhere .. I'm also missing the Wallet key adapter but that's another story! That seems to be what i need I will order it right now. If i was to get a flat .. i wouldn't be able to replace the tire.

The car lived in California , then NYC sold on a auction and Now I own it.
