well, i couldnt wait and dragged the whole thing down to my garage and did a test fit on the troublesome front wheels. I did only the driver's side front wheel.
no rubbing, no contact with the brake caliper, nothing. The jack included with the kit fits our jack points perfectly, the tire iron is standard BMW 17mm.
i drove around the inside of my parking garage, up and down the ramps, left and right full lock, no rubbing, no problems. i couldnt go faster than about 20mph as its an indoor garage, but visually, there's at least 3mm of clearance between the caliper and the wheel. i had the windows open and listen carefully for any signs of rubbing. inspection of the wheel after remove revealed no contact scratches.
I cannot guarantee fit for any car but my own, but unless there's a massive production variance, this *should* fit all E9X cars without a spacer.
my next project is to figure out if i want to mount the spare to the roof of the trunk or leave it stuck in a corner.
