Your e-cred just went through the roof, because of course that's what postcount means.

Don't forget the direct correlation between post count and credibility

Mine haven't cracked either and I've put at least 16 miles on them in 8 months.

the caliper bracket is actually part of the caliper itself..I'm curious though if its possible to make it work..


changing pads without caliper removal would be nice.. but not with the 135i calipers.


I'm currently using Carbotexh XP10s in the front XP8 in the rears and ATE Superblue/Typ200.
Should be easy to make brackets for calipers like that. Also plenty of options above those carbotechs and Ate fluid.

But I didn't think they'd be that thick. I was thinking 0.25-0.5mm. Just really thin shims.
