Yea, getting the hubs re-drilled has moved much higher on my to-do list because of this BS.

I have been working on this for a while now, and with having access to a machine shop and a master welder it can(and is) being done on my R53. I modified the stock front hubs already and i'm using E39 M5 front hubs on the rear. Definitely not a practical solution, but if it were easy...everyone would be doing it.
The only issue I am having is finding the time to finish the project...with two jobs and three little boys, doesn't leave me a lot of time to work on it.
