    You will need different hoses mate I think, the standard ones probably wont be long enough either

    The M4 hoses or 335d hoses should fit nicely

    cheers will get some ordered.
    after adding the 2mm shim and running 15mm wheel spacers will the wheel catch on the arch with standard 19” wheels or cause any problems?

    i’ve just had a go at doing this set up with the e90 360mm discs and the 340 performance caliper. it will fit on however the pins that hold pads in place touch the disc
    so i’m thinking the 345 csl disc might be a better option.

    I've now got the full kit to start playing, but looking through the previous posts I think we've missed the pad pin issue with the 350mm discs!

    Potentially in the long run that overhang of the pad could give you serious problems unless it's dealt with.

    hello, I have put to put the front brakes form an M4 after taking them to remove the 2mm so they are centered and I have a doubt, although ne the photo you see the clip centered with the disk on the underside of the clamp there is less distance than on the outer side so to center it I have to remove 0,9mm more.

    I see what you mean. Mine was the same to be fair, however I wasn't willing to take any more meat off the lugs. Thats not to say they won't be fine, however I personally was not comfortable taking any more off.

    You can still get full thickness 16.5mm pads in with the backing shims in fine even if you've only taken 2.0mm off, and it won't affect pad wear in the slightest.

    First of all thanks for the answer, my question is to know what is the correct position of the caliper.
    The caliper has 2 parts and are united with bolts but there are not simetric and this is my question.
    I have removed 2mm and the the union of the two parts of the caliper matches the center of the disc, I have made a red line to see it in the following photo:
    [​IMG]

    But in the following pics you can see that there is 1,8mm of diference from one side to other side so I need to cut 0,9 more to center the disc with the caliper that really should be the right thing:

    my head tells me that I have to remove those 0.9mm so that it is correct but I see that nobody has done it and that's why he misses me

    Really the 'correct' proper positioning would be achieved by machining 0.9mm off again to get the best alignment I'd have thought. However as mentioned before I haven't done that, and honestly its going to make absolutely zero difference to any functionality of the brakes at all.

    Whatever you feel happiest with :thumbsup:

    I have a set of M135i/235i front calipers for sale. These are the 340mm ones which fit perfectly on a 345mm CSL disc. Piston rubbers are perfect and has had new bleed nipples fitted where items were seized.

    Will post a proper add up in the for sale section- but PM me if you want the inside scoop...
