Re: Low mileage Z1 for sale in California

Never seen these wheels on a Z1 before. They look like those from a Z4 Alpina which would mean a 5-lug conversion and no longer a stock condition car. Alpina Rims 18" for a MINI are 4spoke ...

There was once a project by the official BMW Z1 Club to order these alloys for 17". They dropped the project.
I think it was to expensive - and also you need a TÜV-Approval for the Wheels to mount them to the car. I don't think that the US-imported alloys will meet the criterias for that.
