    Hi all, first post here. I've got a 1995 316i and want to upgrade from the standard solid discs. I can get some E36 325 calipers, disks and pads off a friend so i was wondering if they'd be a straight fit. I believe they share the same hub... I know to fit M3 front set up I'd have to change the hub too.

    Thanks in advanve,

    Pimms

    I too am looking to upgrade to vented discs on my 1.9 Compact and was wondering if i can still keep the 15" standard alloys with an upgrade?

    In the new year i will be fitting bigger wheels but want to keep the 15's for winter use if poss.

    The reason for upgrading is that the Mrs drives the car at times and she has a habit of coasting and only using the brakes to slow down despite my protests at times.

    Depends what you are upgrading too? 325 ones you won't have a problem but M3 ones you will need 17" minimum
