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

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

Thanks!

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