Don't think it will. The distance between rotors is different.

Re: front wheel

The easy way to tell is by comparing the brake calipers. Brembo VS. BMW calipers indicates different wheels. Short answer is no, they are different.

Re: front wheel

Yes it will fit if your 2001 was made after 01/01. In other words if it has integral ABS or the BMW logo on the calipers the 05 will work.
