Question M3 Rims Fitment

I just purchased a 2006 330i (Sport/Premium Package). Would the 2006-08 M3 Rims fit the car as well as the lip spoiler?

E90??

Yeah should do.....just.

They are the same size and offset AC Schnitzer offer as one of their size options.
You will however have to go 225/40/18 or 225/35/19 and 255/35/18 or 255/30/19 on the tyres though, and it will be tight.

I will try tomorrow and take some pics.

I think it will be fine, people have been putting on 6 series wheels and only had to roll the inside of the arch slightly, and they have an offset that is 15mm more aggressive.

CSL rims go on no problem with a lot of room to spare up front. ACS offer their wheels in the same offset, in fact a little more aggressive, and a couple of Euro sellers are offering them with 225/40 and 255/35 tyres on the 18" rim, so I think they will with the right tyres on.
