Re: Without Wibbles...

As a suggestion.... I'd try deleting the pairing from the car and phone, then re-pair everything for CarPlay to work. As long as you have not had any dealer software updates then CarPlay should not be lost. Its also possible that any other CarPlay vendor over writing CarPlay may cause an issue unles...

Look great and no doubt effective - just a shame the oem 6pot/400mm brakes are so effing heavy.
Not noticed any weight related issues with regards to handling.

Performance is outstanding

Looking great.
What’s the clearance between the caliper and the wheel. Looks very tight.
Clearance is very tight, - but its much better on the inner barrel where the wheel steps back.

Re: R99's Individual Pure Blue F31 330d - The Family Wagon!

That’s stunning. Love the colour and the way the brakes totally fill the wheels. The 30d is a great car; I had one as a courtesy car whilst my E90 330 was in the body shop. The mid range punch is impressive. Thanks! Yeh the 30d is a great allrounder in my opinion - its got plenty of go when require...

Re: F8x CCB front 6 pots / M2 2NH 6 pots on F2x / F3x / E8x chassis

Well done looks awesome! :) Ditto - great job and looks superb. Any plans to adapt front 370/380 calipers fit the rear cw 370mm discs ? Thanks! Plans are to make a set of brackets to fit the M2 Comp / F8x CCB 4 pot rears with the M2 Competition 380mm rear discs. Just need to recover some funds and ...

OK, so finally I can update this..... with the results of my ongoing brake project in conjunction with Vagbremtechnic To confirm, this is a pair of F10 M5 6 pot calipers fitted onto F3x chassis with a custom radial bracket. Pads are genuine BMW M5 items, and the discs are M2 Competition 400mm. Pedal...

This is really cool, nice work.

I'd be interested in doing this but only have 18s so wouldn't be able to fit 400mm discs :cry:
Yeh, you'd need 19" minimum for the 400mm discs!

Shame, as it will be a very capable kit!

Re: F8x CCB front 6 pots / M2 2NH 6 pots on F2x / F3x / E8x chassis

Just to come back to this one, the brackets are now made!

The brackets are designed for use with the following:

F10 M5 6 pot caliper body
F10 M5 / M2 2NH pads
M2 2NH 400mm brake discs

Test fit on my own car is the next step, which hopefully will be quite soon! :)
