    Must be front because the 316 only uses drums on the rear

    I'm sure that is what you were trying to establish

    Fronts should go straight on as the calipers are the same postion for all models and I know the threads in the calipers are the same. I take it you are fitting the vented discs and caliper carriers at the same time?
