Not sure all I know it's I ordered 2006 z4 calipers and they didn't work maybe they gave me 3.0 not sure but I held then up side by side and there is a clear difference

This may be a dumb question, but will using these adapters have any impact on ABS performance? I'm likely going to go with the E36 M3 version (it's a track car that I've already removed the parking brake from).

Yes/no. The abs sensor is retained so if a wheel locks up, abs will kick in. If you continually lock up front vs rear or rear vs front, you may need a bias/proportioning valve to put more pressure front/rear or play with the brake pad compounds.

I don't suppose you have a part number for the caliper that worked?

Cross-reference the part numbers. I don't recall exactly.

Has anyone done the M3 Extreme kit? I tried putting mine on today and found two issues. First, my brake lines won't reach with the M3 calipers. Anyone know if the E36 M3 rear line is longer, or have a solution?

Second, once everything gets bolted up my pad hangs off the outside edge of the rotor by about 1/8". It's probably not going to make a notable difference, but I'd hate to give up surface area if I don't have to. Did anyone else experience that, and if so how did you correct it?

Can't say about the pad fitment, but it shouldn't hurt much.

I took BimmerBum's advice when buying and stayed stock with more aggressive pad choice. However it's a street car that I putz around in.

I know for the cost Bluebimma's CL600 rear brake kit he used worked quite well and was extremely cheap. As long as you can fab some hangers.
