    I dont think so mate. E36 318 its the smallest unit they make. M3 on the other hand is massive. Just remember if u do change them be prepared for other problems to follow.

    Nope don't even bother-for a start they would only fit 17" wheels but even then too much work involved....It'll be a very costly exercise-I think there is a much better option involving the z3 brakes which will definately be better than 318 brakes

    If you have the complete M3 donor car then it would be possible-there are probelm associated with the M3 brakes as it pushes the fronthub to far forward...I will PM someone who has done this conversion and his input will tell you more........

    I fitted M3 hubs to my standard 318is front shocks and it resulted in the front wheels being pushed closer to the front bumper.

    I rectified this by purchasing an H&R coilover kit for an M3

    They will fit but you require hubs, front shocks from an M3 and as well as the brake discs, callipers and pads. You will definitely need at least a 17" wheel to clear the calliper

    If you require these parts then do a search for CR M-Tech as he specialises in breaking M3's for a living
