HELP: Lug nut stud

I went out today to go to work. I looked down and one of my lug studs is gone. How hard is it to DIY? I have access to shop with tools on base. Also what are the issues with driving the car?

Check the rest of them first.
If you have a breaker bar to change a flat (some E90's don't have this)
Tighten the rest of them down before setting off, you don't know how that one was lost.
The car can be driven with one missing, but you should get one and install.

Kinda weird that you looked down and saw one missing, someone after you or did you literally just looked down and saw it?

It is a lug bolt, not a stud. Just get a new one, put it in and torque it.

Not the bolt itself, the actual screw that the bolt goes on is missing.

It is opposite of American cars, the missing part is the bolt, the car just has a threaded hole and you put the lug bolt on with the wheel, not like other cars where the bolt stays on the car and you just use a nut.

Take another one off and then it will make sense, all you need is a new lug bolt and the lug wrench or a socket wrench to install, no special tools!

I believe you are missing a wheel bolt. Unless your hubs have been converted to studs, the screw as you call it is part of the bolt. Did you buy the car used? It comes from the factory with wheel bolts, not studs and nuts. It's just one piece, and easy to replace.

Edit: too late. Just trying to help

If you are at Fort Dix it might not be better than FUBAR.
