Which are the "discontinued" ones? And are you looking for the caps or the valve stems? Assuming you are looking for caps, use this search phrase at amazon.com "bmw valve stem caps"

They are also readily available on eBay. Most of them have the BMW logo on them and are made of metal. I have seen post where people say that metal valve caps are not a good idea because they can "freeze" in place but I have been using them in the Northeast for years. I spray them with WD40 and remove them every few months when I check the tire pressures and have had no issues.

Red face Valve stems

In response to the Valve stem CAPS
I would like the CAPS that are flat without the Logo.
I may consider the EBay route but I have had trouble in recieving the
merchandise.
Thanks for the help.

I run nothing but plain BMW caps on everything I own that has a valve stem. They have a good seal in them, they're stainless, and are very heavy duty.

BMW part number: 36121120779

Just be sure to keep a set of crappy plastic caps on hand before you get any tire work done. Tire shops seem to just love the nice BMW caps.
