When mounted is the caliper centered over the rotor? As you are describing it seems that it is not. If your parts are correct then this is really baffling.

Are you having this issue on both sides?

we've only tried one side (front driver side) and didn't try the other as I need the car to get around right now so we put the car back together and just flushed the fluid to at least have achieved something lol.

it looks like its not centered coz if it is it'll fit the pads just right as well. not sure if RR marked this brackets wrong (marked it as B001 LTW) but its actually not for the e46 m3 or something like that coz thats the only thing I can think about now. I contacted them and they said they cant really do much trouble shooting unless I send a picture of whats going on in my install but by the time they responded the car was already put back together.

Question,

The right and left front rotors has different part numbers and the boxes I got do have different part numbers but the rotors inside both are the same. Looking at the picture on fcpeuro they look different. It seem like I got two front right rotors as that's the one that I have the same as the picture with the same number stamp on the face of the rotors. Please verify that the front left got a bit taller hub thus it should install further inward.

What? Why would the rotors be different, you want them to be symmetrical. The only thing that changes side to side is the direction of the vanes.

that's what I thought so too.

This is the image of the Front Left from FCP euro's website, this is not what I received tho.



This is the image of the Front RIGHT rotor, this is what I received. but the boxes got labels on them saying the other is front right and the other front left w/ the respective part numbers.
(34112282445 for the front LEFT and 34112282446 for the front RIGHT rotor).


even the number on the face of the hub on the 2nd image is the same from what I got.

And if you notice the hub seems taller on the front LEFT one.


Anyways imma take pictures of the rotors I got in a bit.

The first image is a rear.
The second image is a front.

The images on websites typically mean very little. Let's focus on the part numbers you received only. 34112282446 and 34112282445 are correct for 345mm fronts.
