    Hi all,

    Long shot here but hopefully somebody can help me. Has anybody got Porsche calipers fitted to a 330 front brake upgrade? I may need a favour...

    there is a few of the guys on e36coupe that run porka calipers but iirc most of them have them with the m3 hubs etc but might be worth a chat with a guy called cozy on there as he's a bit of a guru at making up the brackets for them and i think he helped most of them out

    I've dealt with Cozy before (he machined my Style 5s from ET10 to ET17). I've sent him a PM on there and waiting for a reply now. The biggest issue I have is whether or not the Style 5s will clear the caliper. I want better brakes, and plan to go onto the track next year, but also want to run Style 5s during the summer.
