yes... with exception of the "X" SUV models all the BMWs have the same bolt pattern. The issue is going to be the size of the tires, as the E65/66 models run a relatively huge tire for a car.

The "issue" is also the offset.

But be careful, not all BMWs have the same hub size...

Should work, but as others have mentioned

There are a few things you have to make sure of. Center Hub size for example may be different. On my 07 750 the Hub is 72.6 on a X5 it is 74.1 and like one of the other members mentioned, the offset has to be correct, so that the wheels don't stick out too far or too far in.
Last but not least is the Tire size. Hope this helps
