    New bloke with E12 M535i

    Hi Tim Thanks for your message. Its 0 280 203002. I have managed to source a replacement which I'm told was in working order when it was removed from its vehicle around 30 years ago!? Once I've fitted it I'll let you know if it solves the problem. Fingers crossed

    A very belated thank you to Tim Pollock for helping me get my calipers repaired. Very knowledgeable and a top guy. My next task is to replace the air flow meter. The car intermittently misses / stutters, which I've been told might be due to a fault in the air flow meter. If anyone has ever had a similar problem any advice / comments would be very much appreciated.

    You'd think so!

    That was my plan, but the bolts are also too long as they are not threaded all the way up.

    Hi Tim The spacers are 15mm at the moment, which takes the width to 30mm. Thanks

    Hi I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I own an 1980 e12 m535i and have been reading this thread with interest. I live in the UK (Derbyshire) I currently have a big issue trying to get my front brakes sorted. As you'll know the calipers aren't available anymore and in order to get mine restored I need to fit reduced spacers in them, but I can't find them anywhere, or any calipers I can take them from.

    Hi, thanks for your post. The spec is 280mm x 28mm, but these discs just aren't available anymore for the e12 m535i. In order to reduce calipers to the 25mm thickness, I need to change the spacers (currently 15mm) for smaller ones, to fit with the 25mm discs. The width without the spacers is 15mm so the spacers would need to be around 10 / 11 / 12mm. I believe the e23 7 series calipers may have the correct spacers, but they are not directly compatible as the e12 m535i doesn't have abs. It's very frustrating
  8. Hi there, is there anyone on here who knows about the front calipers / spacers etc that could help me please. My calipers have previously been upgraded to allow for the thicker 28mm alpina discs which are no longer available. Therefore I am trying to revert back to the standard 25mm discs, but I need to reduce my spacers. Any help would be appreciated as I'm going round in circles! Many thanks
