BWM Center cap size?

Good morning, getting ready to purchase some OEM M6 Wheels. However the owner doesn't have the center caps. Wanted to know what's the right size to purchase? And also, is it better to purchase them OEM (online BWM aftermarket store) or eBay which from what I'm gathering is a lot cheaper?

Thanks in advance!

The BMW center caps are nearly all the same size for any modern wheel since 2000 forward. The caps made within the last two or three years have a small chrome trim around the perimeter whereas the prior caps from about 2007 earlier had a grey plastic perimeter trim.

65 or 64.5 MM....

I know it's only.5mm, but does that make a difference?
