    i can get my hands on some ap racing brakes as used on royal marines landrovers im just wondering how i can get the right discs. ive got a fabricator who can make the backing plates to fit the calipers. i can measure the discs on the landrover. they are 4 pots and meant to be quite good, if i can get this sorted it will be great for the car mainly looks wise any input will be great !!!!!!!!!

    You could ask these guys and see what they say http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/f132/ .I would think you would also need to fit on bigger alloys in order for the calipers to fit?

    The first step would be to find out what size rotor the caliper was designed for, width and diameter.

    After that, find the nearest match to suit (E36 328 - 286mm, E46 328 - 300mm, E46 330 - 320mm etc) from OEM if possible, these are all 22mm wide iirc. Then you'll have to get a caliper carrier to suit.
