The genuine ones are real spendy.

Some of those ARE aftermarket.

Search bimmerfest.com for a member called CactusJacks1. A while ago he reproduced the caps with Hartge emblem and locks. They were perfect. He may have a few sets available, but as Ken said, they are expensive, but increase the value of your rims if you decide to sell.

I bought mine directly from Hartge two years ago. The sell on ebay.de so you could try there or contact them via email. They were 85 dollars picked up at the show room. I brought a VAT form to save on the 18.5% Value Added Tax and while I asked what other E30 stuff they had but sadly they had zilch at that time. It's a short drive from Ramstein or Spangdahlem as I go to those bases fairly often. I do miss living in Bitburg, it was a great experience.

That second photo shows a center cap under the wheel? I will say the plastic they were made from becomes brittle as they get older so be careful with them.

I'm still working on them. Maybe smoothing them out with some body filler?
