doesnt really matter... a spacer is a spacer. with a spacer as thin as 3mm it's almost a guarantee to be difficult to remove from the hub if it gets seized on there (which it will), so it would be a smart idea to cut a couple little notches in the backside of the spacer around the edge to be able to fit a flat-head screw-driver in there to pry it off later. some spacers come with these cutouts already.

edit: i assume it goes without saying that you should select a spacer with the correct chamfer to make them properly hubcentric. i've never seen one on the market that wasn't chamfered, but i'm sure they exist. h&r, macht schnell, and probably 100 other brands make spacers for this car that im sure would all be fine. don't forget extended bolts too.
