They ask for that info...so they can assist you with other more specific parts for your "bimmer". Even though these bolts are not far off from universal on BMWs. IIRC only the SUV line use larger bolts (14 mm instead of 12mm) due to the massive mass of those behemoths. In my case I just use M3 bolts. They are black, sculpted, and strong. They are about 0.4 ounces per bolt lighter than the OE Lotus bolts due to the large head used on the stock design. BMW bolts are also readily available in different lengths to suit hubcentric spacers, special wheels and whatnot.
