The 19" rims and resulting short sidewall are your biggest problem.. I would guess that nothing in a 19" tire is going to ride like that loaner..

If anything, a lower offset would give you a wider track. Usually that improves handling. You have new tires, maybe that's it?

When you do your search, look for a 2005 model.. Many sources don't note that the E46 coupe/convertible platform carried over until 2006.

Well.. that's true, but it's still the wrong size, and a taller sidewall than stock will likely give poorer handling, overall. After all, in most climates, you still drive on dry roads most of the...

Either size will fit the 7.5" wheel, but the 225/45-17 will look a little better. I've run both sizes on three different E46s, and haven't...

Wow... Tire sizes have really changed on the F25 X3 from the first year model in 2011. Our X3 has 245/45-17.. Much lower profile than the newer model.

In a previous thread, Gary said you could go as far as ET35 without issues.. The lower number will give you a wider stance, but shouldn't rub.
