^ What Kdoherty said. These were stock fitment for E38 7 series.
$250 for a set is a deal! I bought a set for mine and they were great.
Here is a good reference link...

I like this page better:

http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

That gives an enlarged view of the wheel (click on the thumbnail) , the weight, size(s) it is/was available in, and what BMW models had that wheel. (it's in German, but pretty easy to rough-translate)

Wowzers.

$6.5k for a sleepy 318. That guy should've put the $7000 into a motorswap if he wanted to get any return on it.

Shows nothing about the maintenance done to it, unless that 4 banger is keeping up with M3s then it's worth half of that...

That head job was just a waste of dinero...

Guess I assumed that based upon the CL description, that they only fit 5 series Would they fit on my e46?

Then the question is, could I smuggle them home 1 week (1 hubcap) at a time in my carryon?

EDIT: nevvvvvvvvermind. Someone else thought they were a good deal...and they are already gone. Rats.

I flew a set of wheels back with me once as checked luggage. Was way cheaper to pay the fees than proper shipping. However, they arrived bent.

Wouldn't wanna be in the seat below your carry on wheel when you hit turbulence.
