Doing the same thing myself just now. Bought some Alfa calipers on Ebay and I am either going to run them with a 320 or 330mm disc. Plan on making my own brackets, bought a spare hub from a breakers to make it easier. You will not get adapters for your BMW calipers off the shelf. You can get ones from CJ in the USA at for Porsche calipers, Alfa ones from Retro Turbo that are aluminium or Alfa ones that are steel from a German company called Epytec.

Mount the disk, place the caliper in the position on the rotor (pads in place helps with this), measure the distance between hole centres, mock up a shape in cardboard to check clearances, then make it in metal.

Really rather simple, really; possibly the simplest custom fabrication project on a car.

Default I have

I have fitted Porsche front calipers to my v70r I honestly think because the braking effort on the front wheels has increased I do think that the abs comes in to early now to the point where I'm seriously considering returning to the original calipers
