    Hey Guys, I've just bought an 04 545i and this is my first V8 bimmer since I've always had the in line 6s on 3 series. I know that rough Idling is pretty common in these engines and I've read hundreds of forums about it but none of them seem to experience what I experience. So this is what...

    Has anybody had problems with fitment of aftermarket discs on these single-piston ATE calipers fitted to my 2004 545i? The Delphi BG9788 disc is offset about 5mm too deep into the car, and binds against the caliper bracket. A lot of internet people are advertising this as the correct disc.
