you sure it's 46mm and not 36mm? 46 seems awfully big...and as far as I know, most axle nuts are 36mm and under.

from all that I read E23, E24, E28, E32, E34, E36, E38, E46 are all 46mm in the front and 36mm 12 point in the rear but ya like trying to find a 46mm socket is hard

if someone could confirm 36mm for fronts that would be freakin fantastic haha

The e39 is just four normal size bolts at the backside of the front hub, and the whole thing pops out.

IME, anything above a 22mm has a SAE equiv and they're usually a lot cheaper. I suppose the bigger the socket the more forgiving the tolerance too.
