FYI E46 Nygeon Front Barke Caliper Assemblies

Here's a FYI for those that may not know. On all E46s, Rear Wheel Drive or XIs, the front brake calipers are the same, just a left and a right. If you have a caliper piston that is stuck or seized and you need to replace it, you can go 2 routes; brand new BMW Calipers which can cost $200.00 or more, or re-manufactured. Nugeon is one make of re-manufactured caliper assemblies, they are well done, guaranteed for 1 year (same as a BMW unit) at a fraction of the cost, about $60.00 once you get your core fee refunded. However, there is 1 small problem with the Nugeon caliper assemblies; the carrier that is shipped with the caliper piston WILL NOT fit ANY E46. The clearance area for the brake rotor isn't deep enough, so the carrier will not bolt up to its mount. So, re-use your old carrier bracket, the new guide pins and the re-manufactured piston assembly. (Bav Auto only sells the piston assembly with the new guide pins, they have obviously run into this problem before (and some of the members here may have as well).
