The centrebore isn't the same between E39's and any other BMW. Maybe there's an adapting spacer? I don't recall one though.

oh wait, I read it wrong, I thought u said 37mm et, is center bore the same as offset?

In that case, E39 offset is approx 20mm. I don't know what the rear is, gonna have to ask E39 guys.
