    Hi, pretty sure Im having trouble with my calipers, just took off old front discs and pads, hardly any wear, but badly warped. New Brembo discs and pads on and they are heating up way more than they should on short journeys. I have checked the internet and am having difficultly finding the right calipers, apparently the M-Sport version of the 320CI have a bigger piston and I am hoping someone has had the same problem but could reccommend a parts place or a refurb service for these specific calipers. ECP dont stock the right ones!! cheers

    I've no idea, discs and pads were standard 3 series 320 coupe, so I thought the calipers would be too. A couple of local parts places are telling me different things and I was hoping someone would know through experience.

    That's what I thought, but even in ECP it shows all four calipers as suitable for my car until I enter the specific model, as soon as I select ci sport, it's says those calipers won't fit.

    hope you got it sorted, the existing brakes/pads put on were either budgets, incorrectly mounted (i.e not a completely clean surface) or not bedded in properly they will get warped.

    don't bother with any sport/performance brand just because they exist, get standard OE or good quality OEM.

    oh yeah, change your brake fluid!
