Why do you want 19's? They'll be heavier and slow down your car more, plus very easy to damage on the road. Don't forget tire prices at that size. At the most, I'd chose 18's

9.5" will require fender rolling for it not to rub.

Depends on the rims. Some 19s are lighter than some 18s.

Also, depending on the offset, 9.5 may or may not fit.

you're gonna want to drop it before you get 19's or else you'll be riding higher than an X5

They're going on a 2000 323i, unless he's gonna stance the car and start hanging out with the GTI crowd, do you really think the 19's will be lighter?

My 19" Morr VS8 rims are lighter than my 18" stock BMW rims (style 224M).

Those are lightweight forged wheels which cost much more than the wheels OP is considering. Nice choice.
