Ok I was a bit tough but it's not worth what he's asking.

I paid £8250 for mine ( it's not immaculate) about a year ago with 29k recorded mileage.

I agree with Frank the standard wheel suits the retro style of the Z3.

Also the diameter is matched to the effort required to turn it.

Just my opinion :)

The friction material has probably de-bonded from the metal backing plate of the brake pad.

This happens when cars have been stood for a length of time and water penetrates between the 2 surfaces causing corrosion and forcing them apart.
