do you actually like driving at all or are cars to you just a manifestation of some sort of pathological mother complex ?

Hi
If you look at thread I started:-

http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12697

there are a number of links to wheel sites and info on how to calculate the sizes/offsets that will fit.

Good luck, and let me know how you go on.

19" is pushing it a bit on a Z3 and the rear offset won't be right if they are genuine CSL wheels, but there are some nice replicas about in 18" which would be fine (ebay etc).

I think those are CH style and look simply gorgeous, but cost a fortune.

Can't see any problem with CSL style wheels on a Z3, there's lots of aftermarket wheel companies doing them.

Not so sure about those ones, they have a distinct air of "aftermarket" to them, I think it's best to stick with replicas like on that black Z3 IMO.

Seriously, you have to hand it to BMW, with each new exciting car incarnation, they seem to have a knack of bringing out an alloy to match 8-)
