5x120 bolt pattern, 72.56mm hub diameter, +13 to +20 offsets (generally ... you can go a lot lower if you don't mind rolling fender lips and such, higher you can't really go much more than 23).

To get those rims to work, you need at least 20mm spacers (their offset is et41 meaning they sit a lot further in the wheelwells) and longer bolts ... everything else works just fine. The spacers (for 4 of them and matching long bolts) will set you back at least a couple hundred dollars (check ECSTuning.com if you decide to do it).

A handy site that I bookmarked is Felgen-Katalog - BMW-Treff - der Treffpunkt für alle BMW-Fans und -Fahrer for information on factory wheels etc.
