E30 325 Rotors, pads, New caliper

I just did a Mazda RX-7 front brake swap to 4pot calipers, so I'm getting rid of the E30 stuff. I have:

2- blank rotors (3000km on them, still have mill marks on them) $50 for rotors and pads
front pad set - (3000km on them)
1 - brand new caliper painted black with caliper paint (old caliper seized) - $50

Did you need an adapter plate or they just bolt on... what rotors are you using? Does the bmw brake lines jive with the threads in the caliper?

Looks like Matty has high offset wheels as well... Not sure how this would fare on my low offset bbs or with stock winter 14" bottlecaps.

The calipers require a bracket that I made out of 1/2" thick plate from work. I went to Canadian tire and bought adapters with lines to convert our bubble flares to the Mazda's inverted flare.

My wheels are not high offset. My wheels are 17x7 in the front et25 and I needed a 5mm spacer to clear the caliper nicely. This will NOT fit with wheels generally smaller than 16", but some 15" wheels have been known to fit.

Thanks for the extra info. I think my ET is 14? and they are 15"... so don't know. They have the stock BBS RM backspacing that doesn't change. Anything I adapt will need to run a stock wheel... so there aren't many big brake options. I've heard of someone using Jag brakes, but not sure what the wheel situation was.
