    Hi as i'm getting the WMS 4 pot brakes that i bought for the now defunct E30 redone to fit the 330i front discs and fit the compact front legs thought i'd find out if the rears will fit the compacts rear end?
    has anyone tried to do this?

    No the rear brakes won't fit a Compact Oliwally, even the back plates are completely different so that in itself would give you problems with the handbrake shoes.

    compact has the e30 rear axle i think...maybe some 325 discs off an e30 might work (if they are any larger?)
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
