I believe so, but they'll stick out a bit.

Not a chance in getting the rears to fit.

4 front wheels, yes.

Nope it's a 328is. Basically what he did, he pulled the fenders as well as rolled them, so it's a "widebody in the rear". If you don't do that the fender will not reach over the edge of the tire, and you will have a SUV-look. Basically you will have to calculate the measurements so that you pull the fenders just enough.

I would not reccomend doing this unless you are not driving the car in the winter and you are willing to spend cash to do it proper at a bodyshop, because I'd be concerned about rust.

Yeah I mean at 96 (if you drive all year round), you're developing rust already with our climate here in Toronto, doing that would be just risking it.

To do that kind of bodywork, it will cost thousands. Paint will likely be necessary.

He also looks to be running some gay Euro stretched tires, which such for performance. If you wanted to run real tires, my body work estimate above it accurate.

Those rims will only fit M Roadsters, M Coupes, and E46 M3s.
