Thank you! You've been a great help! Looks like you'll probably be seeing a lot of me round here!
I'm pretty well tooled. Drill press, compressor, sandblaster, etc. I race a spitfire and have an S2000, as well. Just don't want to run into any surprises I haven't been forewarned about since my BMW wrench time is about ZERO!you better hope that that there isn't any lock tite on the caliper carriage rear bolts. He totally skipped over the step of removing the caliper carriage. He oversimplified it. If you cannot get the caliper carriage off, you cannot remove the old rotor. The guy I had to call had to use a dewalt to get them off. I learned the hard way. Have power tools on hand just in case. Maybe the e34 is different.
