F10 M5 Brake

Does anyone know if there will be any issues installing F10 M5 front brake sets on a non-M5 F10 with 19" 351M wheels? Thanks in advance.

Give LTBMW a call since he's the only one thats done this on a non M5. He said special caliper brackets were required for them to fit on the car. Not sure about the 351's but i'd like to know this too.

Your 19" 351 wheel may not clear the M5 brake caliper. Otherwise, you will have to go up to 20" or bigger

The only known 19" to clear the M5 brake caliper is the stock 345M. HRE & BBS are both currently working on the 19" design.

^^ thats good to know. that means its only a matter of what size spacer is needed for the 351's to clear the M5 calipers. Looking at my 351's now it could use a atleast a 12-15mm spacer to make it flush with the fenders.

If true, that will be a great news!

Nobody, if I recalled in this forum has got it done successfully with spacers. I only recalled the ones have to change to 20"+ wheels in order to clear.
