    Hi. I have a e46 330ci coupe. Can anyone help. Is it possible to fit m3 csl wheels to my 330. Plus has anyone put on an m3 kit and if so how did it turn out. Cheers

    Hi

    I may be corrected but I think you'll find with out the front a rear wings as well the M3 kit won't go on and for the money involved it'd probably be cheaper in the long run to sell it and buy an M3!

    As for the wheels I see no reason why they wouldn't go straight on (if you can find some!) but A20 should be able to confirm that.

    Hi. Thanks for that. My car is the m-tec sport so it has the kit already. I just wasnt sure about the csl wheels since they are 19in and my one is 18inch. someone said something about the back arch not being wide enough.
    Cheers for the info about the m3 kit. Dont think ill bother.

    Cheers

    what is the width of the csl wheels compared to the 330's?? You could get over the difference in size just by going lower profile tyre's but it would be pretty uncomfortable!!

    they wont fit...offset is all wrong.
    take a look in the detailing forum and you'll see 2 subforums at the top...alloy wheels will have the info you need
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    M3 offset is completely different

    I've also read many threads stating that the M3 kit will not fit the standard model due to the difference in widths.
