I'm using memoir (two-side layout). I have the problem that my front page is centered with respect to the margins, which are not equal in left and right side. \begin{center} will not solve this, since it will center the content with respect to the margins. How to fix this?

lookup \calccentering in the manual, or since I have an idea you might read Danish, see my LaTeX book: math.au.dk/videnudveksling/latex/bog – daleif Oct 18 '12 at 10:19
Thank you! And yes, I do read danish :-) – Carsten Gade Oct 22 '12 at 8:32

As suggested from math.au.dk/videnudveksling/latex/bog/:

\calccentering{\unitlength}                         % Calculate center length and stores in unitlength
\begin{adjustwidth*}{\unitlength}{-\unitlength}     % Adjust center
    \begin{adjustwidth}{-1cm}{-1cm}                 % Extra lage front page
        Front page material
