Re: Wheel Opinion

The sheer joy of the Z3 is that you can do so much to them. There is no rite or wrong decision to make on wheels its all down to personal preference . Ive just got some 18" MV1s and im having them powder coated in gloss black. As long as you like what you do to the car that is all that really matters.
