Rear offset is wrong - I don't think thinner rubber will help enough.

For a non M E46 you'll need to stay away from M3 wheels, the rear offsets are too low. In addition to getting the correct wheels, you'll also need smaller tire sizes.

The rears will be sticking past the fenders, get reps, it will make life a lot easier...and they'll probably be cheaper than OEM CSL wheels.

Absolutely will not fit... Just too large for the car and the offsets are wrong... Best bet would be to go with replicas that are made to fit with your car. Here's a wheel and tire package website to help you out with your decision! We have four colors, two of which are completely exclusive from VMR wheels, Gunmetal and Matte Black! Take a look and PM for any questions!

Exactly. I would probably save the trouble and go the correct route rather then do modifications.

Would you recommend 18" CSL replica for '99 e46 323 base?

I have the dated 15" wheels starting 1st day I own my car; now it's almost 10 years old and I am thinking giving it a new look as a celebration for its 10th anniversary

I know that the offset has to be 35-50 mm for e46 323. I would not consider 19" wheels, but I am very interested in 18" ones...

Any input would be appreciated!!!

Like everyone else said. You are better off getting CSL reps if you were looking for the CSL look, but for the price of genuine csl rims, you have many more options that will fit your car

Hey i have a 2000 bmw 328ci and im getting m3 rims (dc style wheels) i was wondering if this would even fit, or would i have to do some adjustments? I have a feeling they will rub, so i was wondering if lifting it a lil will help?
