CSL replica from M3 - On my 325Xi Sedan??

My friends M3 got totaled, but the wheels are 100% fine. I'm going tomorrow to check the specs but would CSL wheels that were on an M3 fit on my sedan?

I have a feeling he was running spacers, but i'm not 100% sure.

Don't run them... Offsets will be way off... Especially with a sedan, and especially even more so because it's an Xi, don't run his wheels, it wont look great and you'll get more problems then you want... Best bet is to go with a set from a vendor, or another E46 out there...

+1 If he is running E46 M3 offsets, they will not sit correctly on your car.

You have two strikes against you.

1) If he's NOT running spacers then offsets are too aggressive
2) Even if he was running spacers, most likely he was running a staggered setup which is not recommended for an Xi.
