E39 M5 Front Bleed Nipples

Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise or confirm what size the front caliper bleed nipples are? 


My calipers have 8mm nipples but realoem lists it as an M10, and I ordered the listed part number from BMW (<£10 per pair) but they're definitely the listed size, and too big for the hole in the calipers.

I used my VIN on realoem, and i don't think there was a revision in size over the years, so is it just a wrong listing or are the calipers wrong?

Have a look on Brakes International 


8mm on Brakes International :wacko:


Why would bmw/realoem have a different size?
