is 30 quid each a good price ? (supposedly OEM parts from eurocarparts.com)

Also, is the disc retaining screw 4 or 5 mm? (will need to buy the tool size before I start this job).

What are the chances of the screw braking, ive heard sometimes they need to be drilled out if seized, is this likely to happen?

Darren (amateur M3 repairer).

5mm.
Soak liberally with your favorite penetrating oil.
Wait.
Take a hammer and a punch that will fit inside the allen socket.
Hammer with discretion.
Make sure the allen wrench is fully seated before turning.
Use anti seize on the bolt and the inner part of rotor when reassembling.
This technique has never failed me.
