Caliper adapter fabricator in Sydney

Hi guys, got a set of Brembo BM5 6-piston front 4-piston rear caliper with 380mm front rotors and 350mm rear rotors off a cayenne S that I am planning on fitting to my the e90 but will need some holes on the rotors to be re-drilled to the correct PCD and mod on the caliper adapter to make it fit, tried to search around the forum but couldn't find anything.

Does anyone know where would be a good place to visit in Sydney for this job for good quality that wouldn't cost an arm and leg?

If I owned them I would make them orange but that's my fav colour haha, on a red car.... Depends on your wheel colour I think.

Gloss black, bright blue, I'm not too sure, what were you thinking?

I thought about Red and Orange too, but a bit too close colour to the body. Blue is sooooo cool but doesn't seem to match Red body, think I might go with Gold!!

Rear hand brake on a BMW is a drum brake that fits on the inside of the rear disc brake. If you are fitting a completely different disc then the diameter and offset will be different, requiring a new hand brake assembly.

I am doing it up with N55 kit on GTX35 single turbo, will likely hit 350hp at 11psi at safe tune, going the same path as Jayson from Jamsco Auto in Florida, but I am actually an auditor, so work is very demanding, that's why everything is happening slowly when I have time that do not need to work in night for work-related stuff....

OMG their price is very competitive Dane!! Seems like I can get both end adapters done up within $500!! What about re-drilling holes to 5x120 PCD, how much did it set you back?

Ohhhh F.... thought it was a matter of fabricating the calipers adapters, correct PCD and center bore that's it... Cause I am running 19" 220m, should have enough clearance both both rotors...

So what handbrake will needed to be fitted in for the job Vince??
