1. Major Mod's none, but you may have to make a number of adjustments.
2. Yes, get the liners.
3. About the fenders, may or may not, you probably will if you're putting on 10/19's
4. Spacers....sorry, you've got me there.

Add this to LOS's argument:
As you go out further into bigger wheels/rims, you're really going to tires that* that are less capable in all weather conditions. While it may not be a factor in your home state; for sure it is crucial factor for me.
Then there is the issue of appearance VS. comfort. Sure I like my 17" look on the E39 but* despite their look these low-profile tires can not absorb even moderate NJ style bumps and potholes; and thus constant bubble on the sidewalls. I realize the fact I should steer around potholes not to them; but......
Hey WindowPro: Are you insisting on sending me for a ride to hell with BEELZ in that convertible BMW? Get him off my back and I am out with 15" rims.

Man you can't wait to get spendin' money on that new car, can you?!?
Seriously, I cannot help you with the rim question; I am just here for comic relief! But I am interested in finding out what you intend to do with your stock rims once you've jettisoned them. I am looking into winter tire/wheel package options, and I am thinking an extra set of used stock rims would be good for mounting a set of snow tires, or at least 2 for the rear.
Best of luck to you and make sure you share pics of all of your mods!
