i actually couldnt find a good place to mount it on mine as i also put a steering stabilizer on, so i just zip tied it under my left side body protector, and yes i used a yz caliper along with wheel on mine, and i would think an excel yz wheel is alot better then a stock bmw, stock versus stock im not sure, i also addred fat bars with risers so i changed all of that to.
