Found a set for sale but not sure if they'll work or not.

the e39 has a different center bore size compared to every other modern bmw, so not without modification or spacers. I thought member 540is had some on his car, may try to search and see how he did it.

You would need some serious spacers to make them work and the spacers would have to be hubcentric and made specifically for the different hub sizes between the two cars. You would be talking about a 20mm spacer for the front to go from 40mm (or 41mm, I forget) to get them in the 20mm range and the rears would need a 5mm spacer to go from about 27mm down to the 22 range although 27mm might work on the rear.

I think the csl wheels are too narrow at at least from the tire size i saw (225, 255).
