To be honest I really have no idea. I don't know anyone with a Z3 so I've never seen what their floor mats look like. But if you're interested, they're $70 shipped to the 48 states.

UPS and FedEx are claiming about $20 to ship to the continental US. (It's an odd-sized box.) I paid about $90 and they are still brand new in the box. So let's say $70 ($50 + $20) shipped.
