    I am considering upgrading the front brakes on my E36 328i to E36 M3 with a view to fitting 850i calipers. Has anyone done this mod and is it necessary to fit M3 struts as well as the hubs, calipers and mounting brackets? Is it necessary to fit wheel spacers with the 850i calipers? I am at present running 18" wheels with an offset of 47.
    Any information would be appreciated.

    e46 330i front brakes are a upgrade option for the e36(caliper and carriers, then get some good aftermarket discs), you will have a long travel pedal though so will need a e36 M3 master cylinder and servo or e34 5 series parts are the same and cheaper.

    Thanks for that, I didn't know that 5 series brakes would fit.

    Just to jump on this thread as it's relevant:

    Will a 3.0 M3 master cylinder and servo fit, or just the Evo's?

    Is it a direct replacement, and can you do the master cylinder without the servo?

    coincidentally the 330i/d discs are 330 mm in diameter lol...and as such will need a 17 inch wheel for clearance
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    It would appear servos are different

    M3 Evo http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...79&hg=34&fg=25

    As are Masters

    So as long as someone gets the servo and master cylinder from the same type of M3 it'll fit?
