i was under the impression that 9j+ wouldn't go on anything other than an M3, have i got this wrong?

yes, i have 9.5 wide at the back with 265 tyres. it's all about the offset. :)

ET45 front ET48 rear (or vice versa as not sure which way round) however I am running 10mm spacers rear and 15mm spacers front

Tyres are 235/35/19 front and 245/35/19 rear both a small stretch but not a lot.

For big rears like that you'll need arch work done Larry. They look good though :)

Not if you stay at M sport height you wont, if lowering though yes you will need rears rolled at least.

Aren't you at M sport height now and get rubbing issues though? Not trying to talk you out of a sale btw, just letting Larry know what to expect if going for big width wheels.

Its cool dude I know and would explain all this to him if he is interested in buying

I get rubbing with 4 up but I believe that to be due to the spacers on the rear and not the wheels themselves, I could ofc be wrong.

If you get any rubbing regardless if you have a full load or not you need arch work imo... Your car shouldn't rub at all!
