I'd echo the others' comments.

That is not the correct comparison. You need to say: "BMW's 7-speed DCT is just as good as VW's DCT". You keep complaining about apples to oranges comparisons, then make one yourself.

Since the standard tire size for E46 includes the 225/45R17 size that is also standard on an E9x, it will be fine.

However, the offsets are slightly different (E46 is 46mm, E9x is 35mm or so), so...

I'd be more concerned at the 13K miles that the prior owner (not the dealer) put on it: he's the guy that would have had to do the oil change and anything else that needed doing.
