    Probably not..I know that if you want to fit M3 E36 brakes to an E36 you need to change the hubs and have at least 17" alloys...why would you want to?I have heard that E46 M3 brakes are quite crap to be honest as the discs warp easily after some heavy braking...

    Well it would be an upgrade but no so simple as a bolt on upgrade...Have heard something about fitting 330 brakes as these are bolt on and better than what you have already

    i fort the 318 and 320 had samller discs than all the other e46's

    fitting diffrent discs would be hard to do,

    you might want to look at aftermarket kits, like brembo uprgrades

    M3 brakes are designed to stop M3's not 320d's. Why would you want them on your car?
