The eBay seller from Spain is selling used Petri's, even the 38. Definitely not New Old Stock.
Most of the foams structure is gone, the bolts are new, the horn button has flaws and so on.
The 35's are a disgrace, he should be banned from the internet, lol.

A NOS Petri looks like this;

I surely will except I have to say, I only know (first hand) of 3 others. These are most likely the rarest of all E9 wheels surely due to their matt chrome brethren who stole the show.
The GS CSL (one of the 5 Muskeltiere) which had all the ‘bright work‘ in black had this black Petri

the curiosity is, if petri made them, what happened to them? they didn't throw them away ... they had to have been sold + put on some cars somewhere.

What you say makes sense except they never seem to show up. The only one i ever came across i was lucky to get also due to most buyers wouldn't even know of their existence. The advert posted by Markos is another bit of proof. Was just my assumption that they didn’t sell due to the matt chrome ones which ofcourse sold like hot cakes. Whether Petri discarded the left overs when they stopped producing this style, probably so? I know a member here who has a brand new NOS one in the box which was a reassurance that they do infact exist and not just an fable.

Are they annodized black or what is the finish?
Uh oh! I have officially hijacked your thread @Gazz. I pointed my bmw buddy with the petri to your post. @Hans and @Wladek are informed of your need, so I'm sure that someone will procure something nice for you. There is also a pretty nice 40 that has been on Kleinanzeigen for a bit. In general, it seems pretty easy to find a good 40.

If you find a free wheel, another local BMW buddy (and member) has a loose CS petri hub and button. He has a 40 also, but it is bent.

This is the only car that is allowed to have black inner fenders!

"Officially highjacked" Well not much I can do about that!

How badly bent is it?
The bent petri isn’t for sale AFAIK. just saying that there may be a hub around if you find a bare wheel. I’m not really adding much to this thread. :)

I would have thought the Ital Volantes with the big rubber center section would command big prices from their history on Motorsports Coupes. Is this the case?
