Striking 330/M3 Similarity (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ E46 M3 Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Mystikal on July 25, 2000 at 19:02:36:

Anyone else notice that the front brake rotor diameters for the 330 and the M3 are the same? I've been hunting for the M3's brake diameters for a while now, for winter wheel issues, and i found that the fronts are 12.8" and the rear is 12.9". Then, i decided to check the 330's sizes because of BMW claiming they had to use 17" wheels as standard now, because of it's increased brake sizes. So, i discovered that the front brakes on the 330 are 326mm. I got my trusty calculator out, and discovered that that works out to 12.8"!!! Now, i would think that BMW would improve it's brakes for their premier 3-series, but now it appears that the //M has the same damn part! Anyone with some knowledge on this, please help me out here.
