15x6 with 215/65x15 is a good choice.
16" wheels are a bit too large and 7" rims a bit too wide, give a hot rod look which is not in keeping.
Fitting 215 tyres to a 6" rims gives plenty of tyre sticking out past the rim so you are much less likely to kerb your expensive rim.

You can fit 215/70x15 tyres but almost all of them are for transit vans or similar, low speed rating and very square edges.
215/65x15 130mph rated tyres £165 for 4 delivered. item no  173290903435

The 215/65 tyres give a retro ride feeling, you can feel them twisting and torquing up if you put your foot down. It makes you realise how much more grip todays modern low profile tyres have.

Looks great but not keen on the "humps"

Free to see all the visiting classics(or it was last year) and to walk the remains of the track. You can also pay to visit the museum which is well worth the cost.

On reading the thread I noticed that you have used MGB seats. I have a pair of the same that I am intending to use but am not to happy about the lever that reclines the seat back. You don't have it fitted, how do you recline the seats?
Thanks

Smash on the Tribute forum bought knock ons fron Dayton in Oz. Much cheaper than MWS bolt ons including splines and triple eared spinners.

I have 2 sets of bolt on wires, one set from MWS and one from Dayton. The Daytons weigh almost half as much and have a much smaller central hun so look much better than the MWS wheels.

Was playing with my sons 2.2 and this also is black under the bonnet and boot, quite a late one, 2002. So it is not just the 3.0 but probably all late cars but I don't know when they changed to black.

Have a look on the madabout forum, in the trobute section, Eric Holms (Andy) build. Different kit but a lot of helpful Z3 information, including wiring (but not the instruments).

What dealer supplied them for £100 and do you have the part number. I can only find the part numbers seperately and priced that way as well!
Thanks

The later 3.0 cars are painted black under the bonnet so can be painted any colour.
Go for aircon if possible.
Try and find one that has the polished alloy windscreen surround, looks much better than the DNA version.
Don't bother with 4 pots. I have a 2.2 and a 2.8 and struggle to notice any difference in performance. Would suggest a 2.8/3.0
as first choice.
Run the car for at least a month and put it through an MOT before starting to chop it up.

Looking good but I do think you should turn the tyres around so the lettering can't be seen. Just had my roof changed to Sir Percy's style with the smaller rear window, gives the car a really different look and away from the BMW look.
Nice thing about the Tributes is that all the panels can be unbolted. I removed my rear end when having the roof changed, made it cheaper as the frame didn't have to be removed and it only took 20 minutes.

I had my grill surround vacuum chrome plated and the results were good. Mine did show sanding marks and I would suggest having them painted first, that way they shouldn't show any sanding marks.
