Thumbs up

as you all know the e30 uses 4-lug rims, and i'd really prefer to have it be 5-lug, what can i do about this, is there some sort of conversion kit, or perhaps an e36 hub would work? i dont know, any advise will be greatfully apreciated, thanks -thanx

from what i recall(not a genius on this scenario), but you have to redo your front and rear end or some such thing. but ihear it can be either a lot of work, or very little, but i am not certain.
