    6 - piston conversion

    Wanted to see what non BMW OEM 6 piston applications have been converted to use on e46 M cars ?

    Why does it have to be 6 piston? I'm sure you could fit a 6 pot caliper from a Vette but I'm sure its not easy to find those.

      Just interested to see if people had fabbed up brackets and hardware for an OEM 6 piston like they have for the Porsche 996 calipers .

        Do you mean the gold caliper from the 135i? That caliper is junk— cracks pistons when hot. There’s far better options out there.

                  There’s a bug on this forum. Idk if it’s just online or what but half the time when I click on a link connecting to somewhere else in this forum it takes me to an off topic thread by speed monkey who has posted the same thing almost 4 thousand times...
