    What size and style are these Original wheels please. I can not remember if they are 15" or 16".

    After some research I think they are probably
    Z Star Style 35 ?

    Don't look, you'll just get lost looking. And dreaming. And searching on ebay.

    I have these Bola B1's on a Nissan Leaf (17"). They are wasted on the Leaf. These are the wheels on my CRZ (sold) 20181103_083445.jpg I can adapt them for the Z3 but that will add 20MM spacing. I am going to see what they look like on the Z3. I think the colour will look good with my blue Wrap. They may stick out too far

    These wheels look good on a Z, especially with that bold colour you have.

    How did you like the CR-Z. I’d love one with a proper VTEC engine swap!

    The CRZ was unusual looks ok economy. A vtec engine one would be a blast. Of course you have the Honda reliability as well.
