The spindle is fairly 3 dimensional, so you might not be able to line up and just drill a hole, as you can see those mount points all have legs of varying depth.

2 might be enough to hold it in, otherwise you'll have to rig something up, perhaps some bent scrap metal to create a mount for the 3rd.

No worries champ.

I've decided to retrofit the f8x cradle to e92 since people in Australia want drug money for m3 parts and I have an addiction.

Check out this thread:

https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1647651

Seems Legit Garage do the front bracket also and I understand are developing a rear also.

Not quite as elegant as on an E9X M3 though.

yes it should be as many m4 owners have done swap to m2c brake setup. The downside is it won't fit in 18" wheels.

So you soldered f series abs sensors to the e series connector? Did you put f series knuckle with hub in the front with the f hub and sensors in the back?
I wonder if i can upgrade to a f series rear hub using scapyard hubs without going for the m14 conversion.
