    Favor: Order from Germany/UK

    Need to order a set of brake piston. Only sources are Germany and UK. If someone is willing to act as a middleman, please let me know. Vendors will not ship directly to US.

    For which brakes are you looking to get a set of pistons? www.autodoc.co.uk appears to deliver to the US, but I didn't go all the way thru the ordering process so I don't know for sure. Also, they don't have brake pistons for every model.

    I have a pair of pistons from OEM stock 850 single piston front calipers if that is what you are in need of.

    840ci, so Brembo front calipers with 44mm and 40mm pistons. I ended up ordering through the link Mike posted - but shipping was quite the total. Still, all is well. Thanks for the responses everyone.

    I ordered a set of these and rebuilt my spare calipers, good quality, good seller, no sticking pistons since.

    Thank you! That is a much better deal than what I was looking at/cancelled.

    Similar price to the stainless set?

    Only $30 less. Shipping would likely be the breaking point- other place mentioned earlier wanted over 90 GBP for shipping alone, not sure what the SS pistons would cost to post here. In general, I would wager north of $35.

    I have found Rockauto to have some great deals. I am rebuilding my fuel pumps, and just ordered the OEM Bosch pumps that fits into our 2-pump carrier. Got the Bosch OEM pumps for $99 each!

    You can buy any rebuild part for any Brembo caliper from Brembo directly. No need to buy overseas.
