BMW Style 103's from a Z4 onto a E92?

I have a 2011 base 335i coupe and thanks to some thievery I've lost my winter rims. I've been offered a deal on some style 103 rims from a Z4 and except for the offset of 47 (which I intend to cure using spacers), it would seem like they should fit. Only real question is brake clearance. Since its a 4 hour round trip to get these wheels I'm looking for any helpful experience concerning fitment. I was tole by a BMW service rep that BMW wheels are not interchangeable. I take that with a grain of salt. Any advice greatly appreciated!

I can tell you with absolute certainty that these will not fit. I just went through this. I picked up a style 103 wheel as a full size spare and tried to mount it. Even with a 20mm spacer the brakes would not clear the inner barrel of the wheel.

In fact, I have a style 103 wheel and tire sitting in my garage mocking me right now.
