    Cannot fit. Assuming the rims are 19x8.5 Front 19x9.5 Rear,

    E46's offset - Front +42 Rear +45
    E90's offset - Front +35 Rear +30

    If the rims are 18x8.5 Front and 18x9.5 Rear,

    E46's offset - Front +42 Rear +45
    E90's offset - Front +36 Rear +30

    You need spacers to push the wheels out.......
