Little known fact is that there is a strong tendency in the car audio world for people to just make up specifications, so what works on paper doesn't work in the real world most of the time.

Good luck!
Ye-e I know - wonder why I was asking for of-the-shelf drivers others have had success with..!

Unfortunately nothing right now that I have here with me in the open box realm. Scott here on the forum got the last E46 open box

They do randomly pop up though from time to time.

I don't know oem speaker parameters (and you will not find them anywhere).
As I said before, if you want to do things right, spend a little extra money and get an amp + speakers (or head unit + speakers).
Thank you for the shameless plug
