Question on OEM M3 wheels

Could anyone confirm the following? Especially regarding forged vs cast?

E46 M3 18" Style 67 - 18x8 ET47, 18x9 ET26, Cast(?)
E46 M3 19" Style 67 - 19x8 ET47, 19x9.5 ET27, Forged
E9x M3 18" Style 219 - 18x8.5 ET 29, 18x9.5 ET23, Cast(?), Almost identical to style 260?
E9x M3 19" Style 220 - 19x8.5 ET 29, 19x9.5 ET23, Forged

I wanted to get a forged 18" set for non-winter, preferably OEM, but if only 19" OEMs are forged, then I need to mentally prepare myself to sell one of my kidneys. Thanks.

Correct on the E9X M3 specs. 19s are forged, 18s are cast. Both a total PIA to clean.

I might be selling my front 18" rims from my M3 (219s). You might be able to find someone willing to split another set of 18s up on M3 post.

I see. I'm leaning towards forged rims at the moment, so I'll let you know if otherwise. Thanks for the info!
