    the E46 rack has better clearance for the front diff but the subframe needs modified for it to fit.

      I was going to give up on it, but after going back and forth between my E90 and the ix, I'm definitely going to try and make the E46 rack work. The E30 steers like a bus in comparison to the E90. my 385mm Mtech-II wheel doesn't help either.
      I have an E46 Xi rack, so I can include mounts for it and at least try to make sure it clears everything else that bolts to the crossmember.

                      Maybe, but the project is so slow at the moment so everyone that reads it will fall asleep :D

                      Ok, then the E34ix hubs must be a little wider because theese rotors are 3mm shorter than M3 E36 :)

                      Sorry for the slightly over sized picture btw haha :D

                            Thanks!

                            That will be really handy info for figuring out a bolt-together 5-lug swap. Those are your E34 hubs, right?
