Will M3 Stock Brakes fit 335s etc...

I bought the BBK for my M3 and have left over stock M3 brakes, does anyone know whether these fit the 335's etc... so I can sell them?

there was another thread on this under for sale - someone said no - the calipers do not fit. someone may want the pads and rotors for extras, except inthe USA we get free maint for 4/50

That was my thread. They are not a direct bolt-on. But there are a lot of people that can make adapters to make it fit the same way the brake manufacturers made their calipers fit the M3.

Is it because of the wheels that they won't fit or is it something else.

the bolts between the caliper and the suspension do not line up - a custom adapter would be required.

The M3 uses a completely different front spindle than the 335i.

If you were to go as far as adapting the M3 brakes to the 335i, we think you would be much happier and have better performance using an aftermarket BBK.
