Sadly found out from Cliff that the rears are different ET size they are ET27 which is for an M3 fitment, so will have to do number of things to get the bloody thing to fit,

1 Change the size of the tire to 235 (but zero rim protection and harsh on pot holes ) or 245
2 Roll the rear arches to make more room

So looks like this wont be don't this side of this year and its October now, :(( :((

Save up the funds for tires and roll arching here we come :d

Sam also didn't mention that his wheels are not 9 and 8j, they're 8.5 and 9.5j with rear M3 ET27 fitment in 19" :shock:

Look at the net found this thread on http://www.archenemy.co.uk


E46 3 series – M3 rims on Non M3s, both the 18×9 et26 and 19×9.5 et27 M3 wheels can be fitted. The rear arch is flared out approx 8mm and you need to use a 235 tyre (picture with 255 & 265) The fronts go straight on being the same spec as the std rims.

Image

So looking at it needs to flare out the rear arches and place 235 on the rear rims
