I think i have solved the nebulus M5 -> 540 diff question

the following flanges will work to keep your 540 half shafts while using M5 diff..

E28: Details on E28

E31: Details on E31
E31 840Ci COUPE
E31 840i COUPE
E31 850Ci COUPE

E32 750iL SEDAN

E34: Details on E34
E34 540i SEDAN

E38: Details on E38
E38 740i SEDAN
E38 740iL SEDAN

since we know the E32 750's work, the part # is used on other models.

Part #:
331 312 140 87 x2 <-- flange
331 412 064 39 x2 <-- lock ring

It takes a lot of work to be lazy.
