Rookie brake question...

Never swapped out the OEM brakes on a car before but thinking about doing this on my M3. My question is really about the BMW Performance brake kits. They are shown as for the newer 3 series but I was curious if they would fit an E90 M3? The BMW kit is a bit cheaper than the StopTech and quite a bit cheaper than the Brembo kits. The only thing that the catalog says is the kit requires a minimum 18" wheels which is not an issue as I have the 19" ZCP wheels. Thanks in advance for any guidance/education on after market brakes!
