    BMW E46 Brake Calipers

    Well... Here is a link to eBay surprise

    BMW 330 E46 Front Brake calipers £40 Cashback !!! 63008/9 Std Silver | eBay

    Its two BMW E46 Calipers now is this cheap for what they are? and would it be worth it?

    I am missing the carriers here right? and the pads and disc's... also would my E36 braided Goodridge fit these?

    Don't know if you can buy new carriers, didn't check with dealers but could not find any in scrap yards or eBay while I was looking

    Cheap for 2 calipers, but yes there looks like no carriers.

    Don't people use the carriers to put other calipers on? Or am I making that up lol

    For a new pair of callipers that doesn't look to bad Devil.
    You need carriers and disks/pads. Not sure about the break lines, I think yours will fit, but not 100%

    Discs will cost £130 (Freddo) and Pads (Padgid) around £40 and Carriers... Hmmm if I am lucky £30 - Hope the Hose's do fit them... other wise I'll have to get adaprters to make erm fit... bit of copper pipe will do nicely

    not a bad price at all! dont worry your goodridge hoses will be a straight fit mate and as already said you'll need the discs, pads and carriers
    its also advised that you use the m3 mc and servo as without it the pedal travel just felt too long
