    will the front brakes (discs, carrier, pads and calipers) fit on a 325ci?

    Will the wheels fit on directly or does the m3 have a different pcd

    If not what if i get the complete hub onto my car?

    thanks

    no they won't fit mate! you need the complete huds/struts. but then the tops of the struts are off set and the wishbones for the hubs are different too. its all to do with camber.
    so the first question is no!

    thanks for confirming
    i was getting them at quite a good price so thought why not.
    otherwise i was looking to change to 330 brakes which are the same size as the m3 ones anyway but a thinner disc right?
    the brakes are good but i want them to be better tbh.
    what will i need to change to 330 brakes, i know the carrier disc and pads, what about calipers? will the 325 ones not fit?
    if i do switch then i will put goodridge hoses all around with some descent pads and that should give me a good set up

    330i calipers, discs, pads & carriers are what's required. The braided hoses are a good addition, as it some good quality brake fluid (changed regularly).
    My brother has the same disc set-up as you on his 328i. He runs BMW discs (not aftermarket rubbish), Ferodo DS2500 pads & ATE superblue racing brake fluid. It stops very well indeed, even after lots of track use

    Forget the M3 set-up - you need so much more than the brakes to make it work.
