Someone did fit one that I know of so would assume it's possible with the assembly.

Enjoy the car!
Cheers mate, pretty sure you couldn't pick the extra storage as an option.

How did you pay for front discs? I've seen them quite cheap on amazon.

I think they retail at about 100 each less any discount you can get, Cotswold on here are a good place to source all your parts from.

I got the last 2 in the country so I would assume Germany has the stock now unless they get ordered in for stock.
Finding aftermarket replacements was nigh on impossible! Tarox offerings at about 600, MTEC had nothing, eurocarparts had no knowledge of a 330mm disc for a mini so it was either OEM or nothing really!

I think the trick is to look for the 330mm BMW-Performance brake discs...

Some minor differences
None of the BMW offerings come in 4x100

The ones on amazon are correct, I looked up the part no on the brembo site and searched for them. Even cheaper from Europe.

I'm sure if you spoke to the wonderful chaps at Nitrac they could get you something made.

Personally I don't find them expensive. Quality is exceptional and they last for aaaaaaaages.
