E46 CSL rims

Can CSL rims from a 2004 E46 be installed on an E93 Sedan?

E90 is a sedan. E93 is a vert.

The offsets for an E46 are going to be rather conservative for an E90 or E93. The fronts will work okay if they are an ET 40 but the rears will be inset, you can either run spacers or purchase more aggressive rears.

If they are in fact real OEM CSL wheels you will need...

- 15mm spacers in the front
- 4mm spacers in the rear

... to look exactly like the OEM E9x wheels offsets in the fenders.

If you want to have a flush look at the fenders you will need...

- 30mm spacers in the front
- 15mm spacers in the rear

CSL (the genuine CSL) wheels and ZCP (Competition Package) wheels are different.
CSL had 19x8.5 front and ZCP has 19x8.0 front.

And ZCP wheels were first released in the state on 05.
So CSL on E46 needs some more clarifications.
E46 M3 with original ZCP wheels from 05+ E46M3?
CSL replica on E46 3 series?
Or real CSL imports on E46M3?

+1 I assumed they were reps but we need to know if they are OEM or not.

I ran the CSL reps with a 10mm spacer on the front to match the stock offsets. The rears were 1mm off, so I didn't bother with that.
