    I am about to fit some ex BTCC front discs on my E36 328i track car.

    Is there any benefit to fitting M3 (3.0 or 3.2) hubs prior to making up the caliper brackets.

    The part numbers for the 3 hubs are different, but does anyone know what the differences are.

    The 3.2 have more camber built into them
    The 3.0 and 3.2 have longer arms(for lack of a better word) that mount the brakes

    Not really worth changing in my opinion

    Thanks for the reply, do you know if the increased camber is the same as can be achieved with shims on the 2 lower strut mounting bolts??

    you'll easily be able to get the same camber or more with shims. I don't know exactly how much camber is different between the hubs but i know it wasn't much

    Did you make up your own brackets, or sub them out??

    Have a basic design in mind, but any pictures/diagrams would be usefull
