OEM 18" wheels, style 260 or 219? for APracing compatability

Fella's,

I'm looking to go with APracing BBK but for now don't plan on changing to 19" wheels for a long while. (Cash, tires are still good, etc) Ap makes a kit, part no. AP7100 but come to find out, if the M3 has style 219 18" OEM wheels, it'll require a 10-15mm spacer. I don't want to go with spacers. Short of calling BMW and giving my VIN number in hopes they can track what wheel it came with, does anyone know what a US spec 2008 E92 M3 with EDC sytle wheels it comes with?

Also interested in confirming which cars came with the 219 versus 260. I'm guessing it is based on production month [Edit: It's based on Market Country].

2008 brochure mentions the 260 as the standard wheel, yet entering my VIN on this site tells me the 219 is the replacement.

Canada gets the Style 219's, the same as the USA....

Hey, thanks man. I was hoping to get a web page for this purpose. I guess to my original question, I got style 219 18" wheels.

So now the question is, should I go with spacers for the time being until I get 19" wheels someday and get the APracing BBK's?

I just am a bit uncertain about spacers and the issues it can cause. I'd hate to end up with spacer vibration issues and have to deal with that or any other problems it can cause. What's everyone's take on that?

Cheers,
