    Rear brake installation

    Backing plate mod (easy way), just flatten outer & trim to fit e46 325/328i rear caliper
    and brake hose line installation




    ...OR...

    Backing plate mod that I've done... marrying e46 325.328i (outer) & e30 (inner) backing plate
    and brake hose line installation





    Use stock e30 caliper bolts
    and shave a bit upper bolt till flush or raised max 1 mm from bracket/adapter




    Install backing plate, wheel bearing and hub..



    Install the rotor, caliper and 12 mm spacer..
    Using spacer to compensate narrower rear track width (+2.5mm than stock)
    in total will be same with front 12 + 2.5 = +14.5 mm
    Because, I used 17x7.5 et.27 all 4 corners

    Bearing sleeve installation

    I suggest remove your stock e30 knuckle and send to shop to make 14.5mm inner diameter..
    then make 16x1.5mm left hand tap..


    Shave a bit (1~1.5mm) or 24mm length from 31mm shaft diameter



    Make inner thread with M16x1.5 left hand tap



    Install bearing sleeve to spindle using fire torch..
    Heat up till its easy and drop by its self to spindle, use pliers to do this..




    Install e36 bearing dust cover
    and trim backing plate to fit e46m3 front caliper carrier




    Install e36 wheel bearing, cap, bearing nut and locking bolt
    use blue Loctite for bearing nut and locking bolt

  • [ETA - E30 Adapters] 5 Lug kit with e46m3 front and e46 325/328i rear brake setup

    Made from aluminum aircraft grade 7050-T7651 KaiserSelect USA,
    high grade alloy steel 4340 | 36CrNiMo4 | 1.6511 | EN24 | SNCM439 steel JAPAN,
    high tensile 10.9 grade locking bolts


    With this setup offset or track width will change
    - front : +14.5mm each side
    - rear : +2.5mm each side






    Benefit this with this setup :
    1. Keep stock e30 suspension geometry
    2. 70/30 brake bias, which good for street/auto-x/track
    3. wider tires/wheels on rear using staggered wheels


    It's required minimum 16x8 style 5 for 16s only to fit e46m3 front brake
    and most 17s OEM or 17s aftermarket wheels



    Parts that you need beside the adapter kit are...
    >> Front :
    1. e46m3 calipers left + right - (a pair)
    2. e46m3 brake pads - 34112282416 - (x2)
    3. e46m3 caliper bolts - 34116767217 - (x4)
    4. e46m3 rotors left - 34112229529 - (x1)
    5. e46m3 rotors right - 34112229530 - (x1)
    6. e36/46 wheel hubs - 31226757024 - (x2)
    7. dust cover - 31206777788 - (x2)
    8. cap - 31206777789 - (x2)
    9. rotor screws M8x12 - 34111123072 (x2)

    >> Rear :
    1. e46 325/328i calipers (make sure caliper carrier have "506" marking)

    2. e46 325/328i caliper bolts - 34203414763 - (x4)
    3. e46 325/328i brake pads - 34216778168 - (x2)
    4. e46 325/328i rotors - 34216864056 - (x2)
    5. rotor screws (M8x14) - 34211161806 - (x2)
    6. z4/e90/e92 hubs - 33416752381 - (x2)
    7. e30 rear wheel bearing - 33416762317 - (x2)
    8. axle nuts M22x1.5 - 33411125664 - (x2)

    Optional parts

    10. e46 325/328i backing plate, left - 34211158992 - (x1)
    11. e30 drum T/A steel brake pipe - 34323412744 - (x2)
    12. 12mm wheel spacers - (x2)


    Brake M/C need to upgrade, since this setup use bigger caliper pistons diameter...
    --> e28 520i brake M/C (23.81mm, non stepped bore) - 34311153053 - (x1)
    If not, you will get deeper pedal feel and brake bias 60/40..
    -- OR --
    --> e32 735/750i brake M/C (25.4mm, non stepped bore) - 34311156643 - (x1)
    With 25.4mm brake M/C, you will get shorter pedal feel than 23.81mm one


    You need Left hand tap M16x1.5 to do mod on stock e30 knuckle/spindle
