Mein Auto: 2014 BMW 335ix M-Sport
Detail-oriented e90 M-Sport owners...

So I just had my winter setup put on my car and now I can't tell whether or not they used the BMW OEM lugs or the ones that came with my winter rims. I leave the lugs in a small plastic tub in the car with the tires, but forgot to mention it to them when I dropped it off. The ones that are no longer on the car are matte black with a concave cup in the head of the lug, which I believe are OEM.

I have an '11 M-Sport with the 193M wheels. I am 95% sure they swapped the lugs correctly as the ones on the car don't look they'd be a good match for the 193M's. ...and I'm usually great with details like this - especially when it comes to my BMW.

OEM lugs should have a threaded length of 28mm. confirm the measurement. usually when a wheel package includes lugs its due to length. less commonly, the seat of the bolt is different.

what do the lugs on the car look like? for example, my rials came with silver lugs that were 2mm longer than stock (TR later stopped including them as i believe they found out they were not necessary)
