My feeling is that you might consider getting a custom 2 piece rotor from a shop like Black forest with the appropriate offset for our cars with a e36 size rotor. If you go this route you will not have to use the spacers and hub extension to accommodate the bigger brakes. I had a set of like new e36 stock rotors that came with the calipers or this is the way I would have gone for sure!
In addition, don't forget to include the 25MM master cylinder in your budget for any big brake program. I had OEM MC and it was not up to the task of supplying the necessary fluid to keep the pedal short & firm.
p.s. You might even consider going to the Blackforest 11" 2 piece with performance pads and brake ducts. I haven't done any testing vs. stock setup to support any large improvement. On paper, this should be an excellent upgrade for our cars (e36M3 3200 lbs vs. e30M3 2750).
