Re: Are these the best factory-fit alloys on a Z3 ever!?

Never an official option for the Z3.

The largest official,options at the time where 18 inch AC Schitzers

Plus I did not think the 7 series wheel offsets would ever fit a Z3 but I'm a little rusty with those specs

I would politely suggest the seller is, erm talking a load o bollocks :wink:
