Tips? Wear eye protection and gloves, such a mess.

Simplest way should be to get the front up in the air then crack open the lines and turn the wheels back and forth a few times to push most of it out of the system. Or do what I did, just let the line break on the highway (it's inevitable) and let it purge all the fluid by itself.

E46 Ms use a much lower offset than E36 in the rear. Those wheels for sale though, the guy said he was using a spacer on the rear to achieve the M offset so they should be fine.
