    E81, E87LCI, E90, E91, E92, E93

    Shouldn't - Piston is same size. Main differences are pad shape and carrier

    Besides the obvious disc size.

    i have fitted a set of 335i brakes alround on a 130 and they went on fine not a prob at all, made a good diff mane benifit is that they disipate the heat better if u get them hot. but be worned replacement discs and pads for these are very exspensive

    i could supply u with a set up if ur still interested pm me
