Front Calliper Pistons : needed ?

I've found that one piston on each of my front callipers,

(Stock brakes), have a chip out of the edge that comes

into contact with the pad.

Is there anyone out there with some spare pistons

laying around ? I'm looking for 2.

I'm not sure what your budget is - but rebuilt, freshly cadmium plated calipers can be had in the US for about $40-$60 quite easily. BMW parts vendors or even the local chain auto parts stores can order them often and easily.

For the hassle of overseas shipping, this might make more sense for you.

I stopped rebuilding my own calipers a few years ago, for this reason. Shiny new yellow cad plating.....Yum!

Just an option -
