Alternate calip position

Post by kaizmoto1489 »

Hi everyone,
Hope somebody can assist but my car is off the road whilst we try to locate replacement calipers as the originals are past saving.
We have been unable to find new or old ones suitable to get refurbished.
So what other options are there?

Hi, so what kind of e21 do you have? Is it about the rears or front calipers? A nice introduction of you and your car would deeply appriciated.

I am sure used calipers in good condition can be sourced over here in the Netherlands. But if you want new parts:

Front: you can stick a big brake kit from Wilwood on the car. Not cheap, but good!

Rear: with minor adjustments e30 calips will fit
It's the man next door!
