They require 18" wheels though right? And may as well go ZCP
17" clears standard M3 and 330 easily. I forget about what is needed to clear ZCP wheels though. I'd guess 18.

Some 17s will clear OEM M3 brakes, but probably not most OEM wheels since they tend to have little clearance.
The M3 when it first came out in europe had the 17" M-sport wheels, just like the 330, which had same diameter rotors.

Hmm, kinda want to ride the road bike, but between having to dress up in lycra, go clean and lube the chain on the road bike, and start my ride either going up a super steep hill or down a super steep hill, I'm having a hard time convincing myself to go riding. :\

Correction, not concept car, but they were part of the winter package with winter tires. They were the style 68 wheels, but only 7 1/2" wide, normal 17" diameter, 47mm offset front, 25mm offset rear. If you type in "bmw m3 style 68" onto google images, one of the first results is an M3 with the style 68's but it won't load.

Well, the Style 68s fit the 330, which has 325x25 rotors, and the stock M3 has 325x28. So close, you could probably put the M3 front rotors on a 330.
