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! :)

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

Work has started on the brackets & I will also be exploring the possibility of a bracket to facilitate the use of the 370mm ///M disc on the rear too

Not done a good job of keeping this one up to date on here, apologies for anyone that cares! :lol: I added a MPerformance diffuser and also a pair of the 40i black tips - really beefed up the rear! https://i.imgur.com/EZsKBEu.jpg I also just purchased some 513m's for the car. 18x9 ET29 and 18x10 ET4...

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

A further update, my spare hub arrived & curiosity got the better of me, so I mounted a 370mm 4 pot caliper on vs a 400mm 6 pot CCB caliper: Kind of irrelevant until I see the hat height / offset of the M2 competition 400mm rotors. However, the caliper position seems pretty similar. https://i.imgur....

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

My reference to mount flanges was on silver adapter bracket where it meets gold caliper in photo above. You could perhaps remove 5mm thickness of each silver mount flange provides adapter doesn’t foul on the caliper Ah, yes I understand you now. The 5mm doesn’t affect me for F3x use, as custom radi...

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

Good project but may not be a cake-walk. Sub’d as am curious about a set of the m5 blue calipers fitting front of m2 with thicker 370-380 discs. https://i.imgur.com/dbP8lQy.jpg Looking at yr photo above - the oem adaptor bracket looks like it has enough meat on the mount flanges to reduce its heigh...

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

The blue M5 / M6 6 pots turned up today - couple of comparison shots - the gold definitely makes these calipers stand out / look bigger compared to the blue! Some shots showing the 5mm mounting point difference, as detailed previously, again a stock 4 pot for size comparison: https://i.imgur.com/N7b...

Monster caliper these :), have you got the new pads as curious to see if same as above.. Ian Pads arrive this week / beginning of next. I’ll post pics when they arrive, but they are just stock F10 M5 pads. Yeh, the size is crazy when you see them side by side! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
