    In a word - Yes they do fit. I think it takes a little DIY as the base plates are different but it can be done. There is a guy on one of the other forums that's done it on his 328. If your going to Santa Pod he'll have it there so you could ask him. You can't miss the car as its a very bold light blue, has a reiger wide arch kit and is named Eli. The owner is Vas and ill be convoying up to the pod with him so ill ask what had to be done for you incase your not attending.
