I'd be very willing to buy. It just seems too good to be true lol. I'm in about $400 into my front 5 lug and I still have another $800 to go and thats just the fronts.
With this it's like doing a bearing job and the only things I need to buy are no more expensive then standard e30 equipment.

So this top nut counter rotates and puts pressure on the actual spindle and spindle nut to keep it from rotating? Could a simple safety wire or pin be drilled and installed instead? This would be my only concern. Putting counter pressure on the spindle seems like it would be putting a ton of stress on a bolt thats already torqued to 210lbs. not to mention spindles get very hot

Yes, why not. The shop has these pre-made, and if they run out of kits - they just make new in a few days.

Well this method originally was made to make it cheaper. We dont have M3's here, which means posibilities for a swap are very limited. But remember you still need two new hubs with bearings, rotors, calipers, 5-lug wheels.. Yes, its cheaper, but still requires some investment.

It would be really hard to put a pin there, the bearing nut only has enough 'meat' to put a key, and you dont want to drill that, so i would say no. Regarding the locking nut - the shop told me that a lot of people dont use it, they just glue the bearing nut and thats it. You dont need to put a lot of pressure on the locking nut, just enough to disallow rotation of the bearing nut.

The bearing sleeve. The piece that actually adapts the e30 spindle to the e36 hub. I already have brake options so I don't need the brake bracket. And what do you think shipping is like to the US?

Hey guys, since i do not have the opportunity to install these adapters right now, i need some help with setting up an installation guide. For that - i am willing to refund a the shipping costs and pay them myself, that way the adapters will cost you 200$. All you need to do is take good pictures during the installation.

Just want to make sure I read your post correctly, these will work with stock e36 325 calipers and rotors and give you e36 offset for wheels?

Are e36 or e46 wheel bearing beefier than an e30's?
