My car has no sunroof but there is a blank where the switch would go.
I fitted a double USB socket eBay jobby and connected it to the vanity light ideal for my dash cam plus a second outlet if I need one.

Any kids been playing in the car and could have put something in there.

Mine where the same and it got to me lol.
I changed to a 20" and looks a lot better.
They where listed somewhere as 24" and 20" as a set.

The one on ebay was selling for $20 but i think they have none left but want to keep the advert running.
The last sale was 4 years ago.
You see it a lot where they put a silly price but it is just to keep it going i would like to know why it's done that way.
Have a look at this post on another forum.

Star marked tyres are exactly the same circumference to avoid dif windup.
I personally don't have them fitted on my e53.
This video tell's you all about them well sort of lol.

Surely spigot rings are fitted to  absolutely centralise the wheel whilst the screws are put in and if they are tightened in a diagonal sequence a bit at a time then the screws take the weight. The problems arise when the tyre fitter gets at them with the windy gun.
Spot on.
