    which 18's?...if they're off another E46 then they'll fit fine, only exception is the M3 wheels.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    MV2's are a staggered wheel...8 inch fronts with 225/40 tyres and rears are 8.5 inch with a 255/35 tyre...iirc the et is 46 fr and 50 rear.
    they'll fit fine my friend
