Update:

18" 237 style wheels is a YES fit on my 530D with front brake upgrade from the 760i WITH spacers (can't recall if they are 12mm or 17mm) but you need spacers for them to work..
760i rotors and calipers
Once I paint the rims and calipers I'll post pics
20" replica wheels were a pain to drive with, many potholes. Found this 237 wheels used with tires for $300 usd on a shop.
Reason I post this is I've seen people stating here that it doesn't fit.

Does anyone know a good drilled rotor option with the same specs as the F01 7 series rotors? Asking simply because the oem ones look very basic and Iíd like something more aesthetic.

I would like to use the rotors with the G12 750 calipers.

Thank You

If youíre using the G12 caliper make sure you use an F01 760i compatible front rotor. It has the smaller hat and wider rotor surface that lines up properly with the G pads.

If you use the 750i rotor you have to trim the pads and the pistons will not be centered properly.

Would these be the correct part numbers for the rotors I should use with G12 750 Calipers ?

Left Rotor 34116789543 or 34106898731

Right Rotor 34116789544 or 34106894384

Are there any other rotors that look better lol that I can use it is the 760li one the only option?

Do you know the part number for the brake pads and the sensor?

I should just need a 4mm spacer correct?

34116789543 and 34116789544 are your only options for the calipers that are intended for 374mm rotors. You CAN run 750i 374mm rotors if you're willing to trim the brake pads, but if not, only the 760Li ones can be run.

~4-5mm spacer yes

Sensor is just the normal F10 sensor.

Pads:

34116874432/34116888460/34106888459

I recommend a spacer at least 5mm thick if you plan to track your car, bed in your brakes, or do anything that gets them really hot.

Also with the 4mm washers, I wouldn't recommend using the pads until they are completely worn out since the inboard side pistons will be sticking quite far out of the caliper by the time the friction material is gone and the rotor face is worn to minimum.

Maybe I'm a little paranoid for a street driven car, and for the record I'm likely going to keep the 4mm washers. BUT, I will be keeping an eye on things as the brakes wear.
Pasted here for reference.

Might be safer to just do the 5mm washer the

Anyone here find a 5mm washer off the shelf somehere that they know for sure works perfectly ?

Washer is to center the caliper to the rotor. Too thick or too thin will make it not centered.

Do you think the 4mm washer is the perfect size to center the G12 750 caliper to the F01 760li rotor and install on my 535xi?

Can I just buy the above washer

Thatís the one all of us are using. I recommend dry fitting it to your car with it first to see how centered it is.

Also, keep in mind that using a single proper washer vs stacking two too-thin washers is easier for install. I use the latter method and it's a PITA to try to install the calipers sometimes since I'm trying to keep 4 washers from falling

This is the main reason Iím using the single washer as well, despite my concerns. If youíre not going to get your brakes real hot before putting some wear on the pads my concerns donít apply.

If you somehow locate a single thick 5mm washer, 100% use that and then let us know where you found it! 😁

If yellow is the rotor
And blue is the bolt
And red is the washer

Would the washer be placed as follows ? Two 4mm washers on each caliper?

My car is currently getting wrapped and I need to let the guy know where the washers should be placed in order to line up the rotor and caliper in the center. This way I can just have the guy who is going to powder coat the calipers do the install at the same time

G30 have 2 different caliper sizes. 348 and 374.
348 - keep original F10 rotors

374 - F01 750/760 rotors
- Left Rotor 34116789543 or 34106898731
- Right Rotor 34116789544 or 34106894384

34106898731 and 34106894384 Supersedes other ones

Thanks so much for the info.

For the 374 calipers and the new rotor part #s is it still a direct bolt on to F10 535i and fit stock 19inch wheel? Other then spacers.
