I thought you couldn't put 5 series rims on the e90?

Looks good!

They look too far out of the wells. This may not affect ride quality, actually might be better for handling. But from photo #3 I have a nagging thought that dirt and debris coming off of the wheels will scratch the sides of the car quickly, unless mudguards are installed.

Looks good... this is the same question I asked... refering to 5 series (e60) wheels fitting on a e90. I like it!

z1ppo325i, do you have the sport suspension on your 325? The wheels seem to fit quite nicely.
