People have done it but I have no idea what's involved. The fenders on the coupe are different to the m3s. Even if you roll your fenders, the inner arch is not flush with the fender. You need to cut the inner lip which many people say you shouldn't bother, but some do.

I was thinking of fitting 10mm to front!
Exactly what I was looking for as I have MV3's on my E90 and wanted to see how it looked.
Does it make difference if using long bolts as opposed to bolting the spacer to the hub then bolting the alloy to the spacer?

OP, I know it's been nearly 4 years but how did you get on with 20's on the rears on our UK roads? Thinking of doing the exact same!

20mm on my rears (stock 225m wheels with 255 Hankook Evo2 tyres ) rubbed worse than a Bangkok prostitute. Even the 15's would rub on dips in the road. Still mean to roll the arches but I hate the idea of adding additional weight that needs to be rotated and stopped during acceleration and braking. I do like the better stance though.

So 20mm was causing rubbing? Damn that's a shame

I'm running MV4's with 255/30/19 Pilot Super Sports, I have found that 12mm is the limit with this combo.

Ah damn! I am running the exact same wheel and tyre size setup currently. I guess that 20mm was too optimistic

I have bought some 10mm spacers for the front, but they are non hubcentric, which I don't like the idea of the bolts taking the load of the cars weight and shocks from the road, they have the correct centre bore size, but can the cause wheel imbalance and a dreaded steering wheel shake?

Thanks
Luke
