This guy sell them. Be aware shipping is pretty long and he doesn't take paypal, had to Western Union the money however he is well known and can be trusted.Any chance someone can share more info on purchasing the offset bushings? I would be interested in purchasing a set for the rear calipers.
I also bought some from him, did a bank wire transfer. No issues, took like 2 weeks to receive them.This guy sell them. Be aware shipping is pretty long and he doesn't take paypal, had to Western Union the money however he is well known and can be trusted.

Did you just eyeball the inserts position ?I made a little bit if progress today, installed the eccentric bushes into one of the calipers.
Here you can see me hold the bushing along with the washer that most people won't need unless they had their calipers machined by FabFactory for F30 rotors.
Without a press, getting these things out and in was moderately difficult, simply trying to find something that worked. I used a large crescent wrench and an old bolt/washer to pull them out.
Attempts to put them back in with a c clamp did not work out as I ran out of leverage so I went and got an arbor press from harbor freight for $60. So long as you can bolt this thing down you'll be able to press them in with a little muscle:

Just remember where you see those washers or odd spots where the bushing sticks out, yours won't look like that.
You can see now the pad lines up correctly with the rotor
The pad was so far inward that a tip was building up and part of the pad broke off on the other so I don't recommend doing this without this bushing.
A bracket for what? The front f30 calipers and rotors are a direct bolt on(except the dust shields, they require modification and I recommend not using them as they have caused all sorts of scraping sounds which I've given up trying to solve)Great info!!!
quick question is there a bracket that I can use for the front I have the 340 calipers didnt know they were blue also I would like to use them with 370mm rotors
The genuine 'blue' calipers came with 370mm blank rotors. They can be swapped out for the M Performance dimpled/slotted rotors.I purchased front blue m calipers and didnt realize that they were the 340mm and would like to use them with the 370mm rotor I messaged the guy from Poland he has the rear bushings available he does not make anything for the front
They are indeed blue calipers but 340The genuine 'blue' calipers came with 370mm blank rotors. They can be swapped out for the M Performance dimpled/slotted rotors.
The grey calipers came with 340mm blanks but I believe I've read you can fit 370mm rotors there as well but I can't actually remember for sure, this could be wrong.
If your calipers are indeed BMW 'blue' then the 370mm rotors should be a direct fit. I'd recommend using the blank rotors since they would match nicely with the blank E60 rears.
