I have a few questions I hope you can answer. I have a 2007 E92 328 xi and I'm dead set on putting aftermarket wheels on it. I'm thinking 19 inch rims, but I'm considering 20s. Since the car is all wheel drive, what are the necessary things to consider with regard to staggering, offset, hub bore etc. I've heard so much conflicting information--I'd love to get a concise answer from someone that knows what they're doing. Also, if the bolt pattern is 5x120, am I able to buy a wheel in a different bolt pattern and use a kit to convert them to 5x120, and if so, what are the drawbacks?
On a different note, what are the capabilities of programming my key, and the instructions to do so. I have the iDrive system with navigation.
I really appreciate and look forward to your answers.
