I had some on my last car...one of them got bent. I'd go OEM - but if you insist on replica then you can buy them from www.victoriatire.com

OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer - meaning that BMW makes the part
ZHP = The acronym that refers to the sport package option for the 330 that comes with the style 135 rims
CSL = The acronym that refers to the super duper sport package option for the M3. Only available in Europe.

Rather than getting the ZHP replicas, why not look at getting some 18" CSL replicas made by velocity motoring? They are a sponsor on the forum. The CSL replicas look great and they have had extremely good feedback for being strong and light - especially for replica rims.

You can buy them from www.modbargains.com - Mike@modbargains.com is a sponsor on the forum and has a good reputation He will also include the ///M stickers that go on the rims for free.
