Hi all, a bit of sad news first... I have decided to trade Scarlett in for another BMW with more seats at my local dealer, as they've offered me a fairly decent price for her.

Re: brushed aluminium console - fitting

You shouldn't need to remove the gearknob - just unclip the gaiter, and put the gearstick into 3rd or 4th to give you more clearance whichever way required. It's tricky to get the console past the handbrake, but pull it up as high as you can, and then you should be able to remove it (possibly by lif...

Hi Koolflyer, I'm running 8.5J ET41 with 225/45s and I've had to use 5mm spacers on the front.
I also have coilovers however, and I believe these stick out further also.

Re: Anyone tried borbets A

So from your trial fit it seems to prove that the maximum offset for Z3 is about ET 38. ET8 + 30mm that they stick out = 38 With a 9" wide rim, you are correct. However, there is a small wheel arch lip of about getting 8mm, and the wheel arch splash hard will need to be trimmed for maximum clearanc...

Wheel Size Advice

I've tried to put this in my own words to help you out... The offset of an alloy wheel is the measurement (in millimetres) of how far from the centre (inside edge to outside edge) of an alloy wheel the back of the bolt holes are. Therefore a lower offset means the bolt holes are closer to the centre...
