Since it's BMW, I'm figuring it's not that easy.
Will it fit and work. Yes.

Will it be correct. Unfortunately as you assumed it is not as easy. The impedance of the speaker is not the same and thus will not offer proper performance.

We do offer a midrange replacement that uses the OEM grills and actually is cheaper than the dealer replacement. And sometimes even used replacements. 4yr warranty and offer better performance as well! Let me know if you would be interested in full details.
