Ahhh walter...welcome to the site. Head over to the Technical sub-forums (The Garage)...that would be the place to ask such a question.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.

Offset is different, it changed with the AU, so no they will not fit.

As outback said, they wont fit due to a different offset (stud pattern is the same). Another thing to think about is that, even if they did fit, they would be a +3 size increase (EL came with 15" rims) which may not go down to well with your insurance company.

You may want to sell them and buy a set of copies to suit the E series.
