Is there a wheel hub pin for the E70?

A long time ago I bought a pin that has a plastic end that goes into the threaded side of the hub for my wife's E46. It made swapping wheels MUCH easier than trying (at almost 60) to balance the wheel on the hub while trying to line up the wheel lugs.

Today tried using the tool, because I discovered I picked up a nail on my E70 RFT and was able to have it repaired from the inside with a patch and not weaken the sidewall (thank goodness I didn't need to buy a new tire).

Anyway, since I unmounted and remounted the wheel to get it repaired, when I tried to use the E46 pin *which worked on my E53", it doesn't seem to work with the 18s and stock wheels. So I was wondering if anyone found something that would work, and especially not damage the threads in the hub.

Ok. I answered my own questions with a bit more research. Since the change to the M14X1.25 I understand now why the E46 did not work. HOWEVER, I found that ECS Tuning seems to have the part for me. http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Site....25/ES2678092/

PS. Found this one on ebay but with no description I can't tell if it will fit

Yup have 1 at home and 1 in the vehicle from ECS, things make R&R'ing wheels very easy. just wish I though of something like that back in the 80's when I was running 36" mudders on my Bronco, I was younger an all but that's a dang heavy wheel and tire combo..
