E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

A tricky situation!

Is it possible to run an E30 on E46 M3 wheels? Don't want to waste 1000 if it is t possible ... All help is greatly appreciated.

Yes it is possible. Why you would want to is another story. 18"s (or the opt. 19's) would be fairly large on an E30.

Well they would look better than the stock wheels. Haha! (: So don't go for the 19" wheels if I do ultimately decide to put E46 wheels on it. Thanks man (:

wrong stud pattern. you will need to fit E30 M3 suspension to pull it off. so theoretically yes, but not easily.

Do you know any where in the UK where you can get a full M3 suspension or would I have to go international or aftermarket?

itll be cheaper just to buy rims and tires then to change your suspension and hubs then rim and tires
