[ Follow Ups ] [ E30 M3 Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by NEWGUY on May 18, 2001 at 20:15:41:

I have a 1991 325is and I am thinking of doing a brake upgrade using the E30 M3 brakes for front and rear, that way get better brakes and 5 bolt lug pattern. I believe that the following parts are what I need:

1. Front and Rear Hubs
2. Front and Rear Hub Carriers
3. Front and Rear Calipers / Pads / Brake Lines
4. Front and Rear Rotors
Am I missing anything else ???? Has anyone actually done this swap ??? From talking to some local shops they say that these are the only parts I need, everything else such as swaybar, struts, springs, etc. and halfshafts, because the 87-91 325is have the thicker halfshalfs like the E30 M3. A local shop has quoted me a price of $500 for labor to do the swap which includes new wheel bearings. Please add to the list or direct me to someone who has actually done this. Thanks !!!!
