No problem busman76, we're all here to help in anyway that we can.

Wheel spacers, as I'm sure you already know, brings the wheel out more resulting in more negative offset. A 12mm / 10mm spacer will be just fine for the E9X M3 as Tom said also.

This is just for your information, nothing to do with the set-up that you're thinking about running. Wheels with TOO extreme of a negative offset can cause increased steering wheel kick-back and put more stress on the vehicles entire suspension.
