Hee. I think this question deserves to be in a faq. Maybe it is. Anyway, the answer is that the fronts would fit (on both front and rear of the 330), but the rears will not because of the aggressive offset (it's 26 or so, I believe). You'd need to do some fender work to make it happen.

That I'm not sure of. Minimum, yes. But it might take more. I have feeling I remember you need to get them flared.

Exactimundo! (if that's how you spell it)

Rolling will NOT do the trick. The offset is so aggressive that you have to PULL the fenders. I believe Daniel with the 19x9.5 M3 offset BBS LMs on his coupe had his fenders flared because of the massive rubbing (even with his fenders rolled to the maximum). Trust me. I've tried the M3 offset and it doesn't work... unless you want to flare them
