    Basically, Ive looked for the answer as best as I can before Posting a New thread. But as im still not 100%...

    To do a Front only Brake conversion on a E36 316i COMPACT, Changing from solid 286mmX12mm Discs to 286mmX22mm Vented Drilled and Grooved. I need Bigger Calipers.

    Question Being, Do the Calipers, with or without the Carriers from a 323i-325i or 328i fit to the 316i COMPACT hubs with no problems? Or do the Hubs need changing, as if the caliper carriers and actual calipers arnt interchangable?!

    Or Can I go ahead and by some Calipers.. again do i need the carriers to fit.. from any of the above mentioned e36's and bolt them straight to the COMPACT's hubs???

    As you can expect, Im hoping to get second hand Calipers. New Bigger Discs and Pads, M3 evo servo and master.

    Thanks for any help in advance.... Joe

    You will needs calipers and carriers discs and pads .although pads are the same
    Hoses fit both calipers
    It is an easy upgrade done mine and well worth it

    Thank you very much, I will get to it soon. Does it matter which calipers I go for! Are the 328i calipers better than the 323 or 325?
    Thanks again for clarifying that though!

    Check to see whether the M3 master cylinder will mate up with your existing servo. If it does then you can save yourself a couple of quid and not have the fuss of changing the servo for no reason. The servo is merely an aid to make it easier to push the pedal, it doesn't matter which one you have fitted.
