WTB Z3 M Coupe front wheel

Anyone have a spare front wheel, or a set? I introduced mine to a curb this weekend and would love to find a round replacement. If anyone has one, or a full set please let me know.

Thanks!
Ben

I saw a red one on the 405 around Huntington beach on Tuesday, I was coming back from LA, saw what I thought was a Z4 M Coupe, but realized it was the new Z4. It looked nicer in person than the pics...

Yeah, I was glad to realize BMW didn't build two different cats when I moved to Cali last year. I was a little worried about the smog check, but passed with no problems.

I find it really well done. It's a little busy, especially around the climate control area, but it's nicer to my eyes than any other recent BMW design. The heavy use of leather on the doors and...

You guys already have pretty good indication of your resale potential, just look at E36/8 cars, especially the S54 ones. Resale has been good, but not stellar. Enjoy your cars.

I don't know about that. I think X3s, Minis and 1ers are all known as having pretty harsh rides. I can say that my 135i has tons more impact harshness than my M Coupe with Bilsteins and H&R...

I went this route. Just note that the 135i has a 14 gallon tank, making it nearly as useless as an M Coupe for road trips, you'll get to stop at most gas stops. Otherwise, it's a great car, but I...

In ten years, BMW's will no longer need paint, they'll just be a humongous badge.:tsk:

At least it's easy to remove badges, unlike the nipples on Z4's.

What are you saying? That BMW has an 80% profit margin on a Z4? Please. Both cars typically sold at a rather large discount, but if you're implying that BMW could build an M Coupe for $9k-$10k,...

RealOEM lists the same transmission for the 135i and the 335i (GA6HP 19Z). I bought my g/f a 135, and she doesn't know what to do with three pedals, so it's a slusho. I have to admit, it's really,...
