M3 18" rim fit on plain jane 325 ci conv?

I saw these on craigs, and would like to upgrade my stock 16" rims on my 2001 325ci to something a little bit more street appealing. He says its OEM, but kinda hard to believe at $300.

Tire/Rim Size
Front 225/45 ZR 18
Rear 255/40 ZR 18

Craigs link: http://orlando.craigslist.org/pts/608966426.html

Any info you guys have would be appreciated.
Thanks!

well I'd be careful with these...
because at such a low price, they might be some Chinese knock-offs and be dangerous on the road

Yeah that's is what I was thinking. Too good to be true. Is there a way to validate the rims? Like an engraving or something on the rim you know about?

Thanks for the feedback!

Knockoffs can have amazing fake markings like that.

E46 M3 wheels will NOT fit on a regular E46 due to the offset on the M3 wheels

Hey, thanks Rooz. That pretty much seals it for me.
