    ...shorter mission than I thought, but here it is:

    http://www.bmtown.com/Z3.htm

    It's about 2/3 down the page.
    Quite pricey, I'm sure it can be found cheaper elsewhere...

    i have been looking for one of these and came up with the same price, as you say not cheap for plastic normal car you would pay around £20, going to look at usa they seem to do a lot for the z

    I'd guess the price is ramped up as they don't sell many. Usual false economics, as they might sell more if they priced them better. Unless they are made of genuine chrome (it doesn't say if they are, or just chrome effect) can't see why they would be that much... But like any company they are free to set there own pricing :(
