Mein Auto: 2000 E39 540i6
Tires touching on rear fender lip

Can anyone give me advice on what to do....
I recently purchased a set of Staggered Rennen wheels 20x8.5 FR and 20x10 rear from my friend who drives a 2003 E39 M5.
The wheels and tires fit perfectly on his car without any touching issues.
I own a 2000 540i6 M Sport and the wheels fit perfect in the front but the back touches on the inside lip.
I was told to roll the lip but comparing the two cars it looks as if his car sits about two inches higher in the back.
Is the wheel well bigger in the M5 than my car?
Is the suspension interchangeable on the two models?
Can I use M5 springs on my struts?
Are they the same?
I am wondering if I could use the M5 springs to raise the ride height as well as is the springs stiffer?
Thank you all for any advise given.
It looks really good and I will put posts on later
