Kaz, Vince, question about wheel locks on Alpina wheels

I know I may sound a little paranoic, but do you guys have wheel locks as well ?

The wheel covers is a pretty good feature, but I'd like to double secure the wheels.

Would the standard BMW wheel locks fit the Alpina wheels ?

Thanks

Yes, I use the locks the dealer gave me when I bought the car. They're the ones that use the normal-looking key, which I wouldn't use on a normal wheel, but since it is sealed behind the cap, there is no fear of them jamming. In fact I don't use the plastic cap that they come with.

I agree, there is no reason, but it feels better.

Thanks for the replies

Yes, that would make me definitely feel better.

Vince, no I skipped tire pressure control after as me and my sales advisor working on the order. He said that the system is too sensitive and beeping, chirping all the time.
