I've done the "use existing 02 type mount" method, using existing crossmember.

You need to deal with exhaust pipe and flange clearance that no one seems to mention. Using the existing crossmember results in it being very close to the exhaust pipe and the flange. It's almost like you want to use something thinner overall than the 02 crossmember, regardless of what you use (320i cross member, eg.)
