Why do you have a spacer? What rear caliper are you using?

Because I'm using e30 trailing arm with z4 hubs which +2.5mm wider and use Lithuanian front kit which +12mm wider...
So I need spacers to make same offset, not excactly same actually.. Rear will be +14.5mm wider than stock....
I use e46 325i/328i rear caliper

great work!

i had a set of brackets made a year ago similar to the ones you made. i designed mine, using a 14 day trial version of auto cad, to run US e36m rear calipers and rotors on e30 trailing arms with e30m hubs.

do you know if the e36 and e46 have the same hole spacing for rear caliper brackets?

retaining the e-brake was a big deal for me. i see you are using the corresponding dust shields for your retrofit. i take it you are retaining your e-brake as well?

here's some crapy pics of my attempt. everything has been holding up so far.

I also using autocad for designed it by myself..
I need some e36m3 calipers dimensions..
If you dont mind to share it with me, because r3v member here asked me to design it for him..
Using e36m3 all corners..

And yes, I must retaining my e brake..
Because it pedestrian e30.. Cruisin every day..
What protection plate that you used?
Are you used e30 e brake shoe or e36m3?

Yes, it same. E36 and e46 have same hole spacing..
The different is distance from hole mounting to piston/pad..

Looks your pad need more inward..
Thanks for shared your e36m3 bracket in here..

I'm a senior ME student. I've got a Max kit (hub adapter only, no brackets) on the way right now.

I've got a set of e36 M3 calipers I was going to use for all four corners.

I'll be making a set of adapters for the calipers and messing around with rear hubs in the coming months

I've heard that 128i rotors on 318ti hubs will work and keep the parking brake too. Need to get the parts in front of me and see what's the best option.

Anyone got dimensions on rear e36 M3 rotors?

rear rotors

Sorry, I dont have 316Ti trailing arm in here..
We imported E30 disc trailing arm though
most of e30 in my place it came with drum brakes

I need some calipers dimensions, could check the measurements for me?
Not much, only 4 dimensions each calipers
If so, I will give you instruction how to measure it

Not a problem, PM me the details on what dimensions you need.

I used z3m protection plates and e36m e-brake shoes. They do not not fit unmodified though.
