Yes bolt pattern is 5X120

Offest = 40 MM

with 17" rims you shouldn't have to worry about anything else, just make sure the specs follow those two measurements.

correct, and as far as width, i wouldnt go wider than 8'' in the front and 8.5'' in the back...7.5''in the front to be safe...with 8'' and a drop u might actually rub...

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
The offset will change with wheel width. A 7'' wheel will have a different offset than a 7.5" or 8" or 8.5" wheel. Just make sure it is for a 3 series BMW and you will be okay. Second vote for no more than 8.5" wheel.
