Was it confirmed that rear calipers and rotors off a e46 m3 will work with this kit. My last car was a e46 m3 that I totaled. The damage wasn't bad so i bought it back. My plan is to use front and rear calipers off it and in the future do a s54 swap.

e36 M3 rears also?

If this adapter will mount e46 M3 rears won't it also mount e36 M3 rears? (I have a parts car I'm sourcing for the S52) If so is there a way to maintain the anti-lock functionality with the e36 M3 rear rotors and calipers?

Thanks, Phillip

Also many thanks to peterz for the tire fitment info!!

The rear adapter in this kit is offset for larger E46 M3 rotors, the calipers are the same

I am using this kit for the front with E46 M3 brakes, the rear I am using Z4 hubs, E36 M3 rotors and calipers and the caliper adapters from Hita -

Is there a possibility you are willing to split a kit for just the front?
Or if anyone here needs a rear kit?
I just need the front maybe we can work something out

same here. i have m roadster rear trailing arms which would be difficult to improve on. the front is all i need as well. if it were possible to buy only that half, it would be a more attractive purchase.

thats what I thought before, when I saw on installed pic with calipers and rotors..

so, this kit will only front e46m3 brake setup.. and rear is kinda e46 325i/328i with aluminium calipers 40mm piston diameter which same with e46 325/328i..

am I correct?

I wouldn't doubt that other combinations would work for the front with different calipers, rears had these listed for the calipers from a E39

528i M52
540i M62
530i M54
525i M54

Yup I have a few people interested in half kits so I reduced the minimum for full kits and will be splitting some extra kits up.

Correct there are other combos I have heard worked, but I recommend certain combos just because I know they work from experience.
