Well I ordered 4 and they are sending me 5. Soon as I get them I'll test and report back. Yandy man I'll be happy to send you the 5th if they work.

it'll be awesome if they work, I'll pay the value of the bolt + shipping no issues if it works.

They aren't in yet as the order went in late Friday afternoon. May see them by the end of the week as they're coming from Cali to DC. If things go well I'll be testing them Saturday while i'm at the track with Kori and Gary haha.

Guys, I checked my my fastener place here in BA (http://www.schrauben-profi.de/start.htm). Normally they have never let me down - until today. They don't have this bolt! They said they've never seen such wierd dimensions on a fastener. And the guy said to me... "good luck" finding a bolt like that! lol I suspect this bolt might be a custom one off spec for bmw/brembo.

Thanks for trying Dack...

Focus did manage to get some shipped to him. we are awaiting there arrival so he can compare for us. as per the description they are what we need ( hopefully)

No doubt the wierdist bolt i ever had to look up. its the fine thread that throws everything off. Normall a bolt / screw of that size gets a coarser thread..

Thanks again

Got the bolts on today. Will test fit on Saturday at the track. Not looking good though as the threads only come up halfway the bolt. Will fill you guys in and take pictures later.

Great.. actually all "we" need is 40mm of thread or so.. look at my pic of actual bolt in prior post ( #48) .. the black line in the thread is where it needed to go.

I think we will be ok.. ( fingers crossed)

can we use a die and cut new threads into the shoulder if we have to ????

We did do a test fit and things are looking good I'll give final confirmation tonight after I swap my pads and put them on and torque things down.
