1. Front and Rear Hubs
2. Front and Rear Hub Carriers
3. Front and Rear Calipers / Pads / Brake Lines
4. Front and Rear Rotors
Am I missing anything else ???? Has anyone actually done this swap ??? From talking to some local shops they say that these are the only parts I need, everything else such as swaybar, struts, springs, etc. and halfshafts

Not to disagree with your shop, OK I'm going to anyway... :-) But I believe you'll need the struts from an M3. For one our sway bars mount to the strut (that's a good thing, think upgrade) and our front wheel bearing is the size of a 5 series. I doubt you can fit our front hub to a vanilla flavored E30 strut. The carrier from our struts actually unbolts at the bottom unlike a 325 (or vanilla flavored E30 as I said before). :)

I think other than that you're all set. Happy 5 lug wheel hunting.
