    Have a look in the BMW tool kit in the boot, there should be a tool in there to take them off.

    If not please refer to manual in the glove box.

    BBS style wheel? You need either a massive socket or the BMW centrecap removal tool. The cap screws off.

    But I think there are some caps that just lever off.

    Just grab the huge nut lookin thing and try to unscrew it. Some unscrew about 1/3 rotation and pop out, others are a threaded section...

    Good luck.
