    They look good, nice job.

    The Design of mine will be a little bit tricky, due to the longer caliper mounts on the 328 hubs.( the calipers almost touch the outer face of the hub caliper mounts)

    Wondering if I could use hubs of a z3, as they look to have much shorter caliper mounts.

    the hub and caliper mounts are the same, unless you have an M. i had 328 brakes on mine before, they bolted straight on.

    That's wierd, your calipers must be a lot shallower than the AP ones. The car had been upgraded to 330i front discs wjich I am replacing with 343mm ones, yet the caliper mounting face is almost touching the hub mounts!!!!

    Looks like yours are quit a long way from the mounts even with slightly smaller discs.

    not quite sure how your setup works

    the disks i am using are from a 330i, 325mm dia. calipers are radial mount so not a big issue wih clearance.
