With enough money anything can be done. I don't think anyone on this forum has attempted to do so, so you may not get many answers to your post.

Good luck.

i dont think its worth it either, practically any style can be had in 4lug if you look hard enough, except OE wheels. ive heard you can re-drill the bolt patter on the wheels to convert the wheel itself from 5lug to 4lug, but i'm sure thats really expensive and weakens the wheel

it can be done and its not a hard process. Its just damn expensive. All you need is all the suspension and axle parts off a e30 m3. This includes the brakes, the control arm, hub, i mean theres a hole slew of parts you need from the m3 and its probly gonna cost you about $1500 to get them.

Besides if you are planning to do this just because you want a 5 bolt wheel that seems very silly. 4 bolt wheels are INCREDIBLY easy and cheap to find (thank you honda, did something right) and you can get replicas very cheap of any type.
