These OEM units are used by the M5, M8 & X5 M. So they shouldn't have that status. Which vendors are you referring to... ?
Getbmwparts as an example as well as many others like it. ECS show it is back ordered. Just odd. Where did you source your parts?

Hopefully soon. There have been too many other fires to put out first. Certainly haven't forgotten about this cool upgrade. With the current supply chain issues parts are taking forever to ship out right now. The right caliper was chipped (took 3-4 weeks to arrive), then ordered a new one & they sent my returned one back. Now I'm sitting on that unit before they send it's replacement out. Should "FINALLY" have it to go with the left caliper in just a few days.

Damn, what a pain in the neck :

I'm curious if anybody knows if there is a difference between the 2020 X5M caliper and the older 2014-2018 X5M caliper. Both are 6 piston and both the 2014 and 2020 use the 395x36 front rotor.

I got mine from ECS Tuning.

I sure was & still is. This Monday I should have the new right hand side caliper delivered to inspect.

I'm not sure & would have to look at RealOEM to verify. I believe the 2019+ is the correct caliper for this.

Glad to see this project is getting closer to coming into fruition. Sure took a long time to get a matching set (left & right) of current gen X5 M calipers that had no substantial paint chips on the outward facing areas. Almost gave up on this at one point. But then I remembered how much I love driving the X3 MC fast. And how well the 4-piston factory brakes slow down this 4,600 lb beast when driving aggressively. Can't wait to "finally" install these & see how well she stops. With the same braking system as the M5 & M8 now, I think she'll stop on a dime pretty well...

Hi fellas. My sincere apologies about the delay. Although this project has been put on the back burner for the moment, I certainly haven't forgotten about this. Not trying to be a tease with these beautiful M3, M5, M8 & X5 M calipers.

The 2020 X3 MC I'm currently restoring is taking longer then originally expected. But now that spring has arrived this will be moved up the list a touch. The moment they're installed I'll make sure to update you all & give direct feedback.
