    Hi guys, was wondering which uprated brake calipers you guys would recommend. if anything i am just doing it for looks really. i had some on my old bmw and i liked the look they gave to the wheels.

    I dont really want to be spending a fortune so if anybody out there has any advice for me ( except dont do it lol) then please get back to me.

    I would fit M3 calipers then however you also need to change the hubs too-not a straight bolt on jobbie.....

    I do believe though that you can fit on E46 330 calipers which are a bolt on job-look up Charlienokia's thread-I believe he did the conversion

    cant find the thread that you sudjested but i am going to look into doing the second option. i would prefer a bolt on job than start taking the car apart.
