F80 and E92 M3 brake compatibility question

Any idea if the new F8x m3/m4 brake calipers and disks fit the e92 m3?

Bolt pattern is the same so you're in good shape there

Other than that, I couldn't comment on the spindle compatibility or the caliper bracket design. I'm sure as time goes on there will be some retrofitting.

im hoping and wishing that it will, the new steelies seem to have one size bigger discs (i think 380mm front). the new calipers are nice too but my priority is higher thermal capacity since my local track is hard on brakes and cooling ducts and appropriate pads arent enough.

It looks like ECS Tuning has this kit using F80 calipers and ECS rotors:

for that amount of money, you could buy a legit kit and have zero issues at the track. unless you just want bling, then do what you want. rotor size has less to do with what makes a great kit than you think.

Yeah, I don't recommend it if you want to run less than 19" wheels, I suggest looking for a different, chassis specific brake kit.

Otherwise, it's a good looking kit and they performed great. My only complaint is the calipers are so fucking massive they trapped pebbles and marred all my wheels.

F8x brake kit fits bolt-on only on e9x e9x non M uprights. M upright has different lug mount parameters.

Ps calipers fits on non M uprights, but with performance f30 rotor (two piece but not floating 370mm).
