Download your own, cut it out and try it - YMMV but I doubt it.
Info like this is why the internet is so great!!! Thanks for that info.

Anyone know if the stock 18" fronts will fit another BMW? Maybe the non-M 3 E9x?
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
