Im not sure if the e36 has the same caliper mount as the e30, anyone know? cos Wilwood do kits for e30 with 280mm discs.

Hopefully getting some 328i Calipers tomorrow.

However Europarts list a vented disc for the E36 Compact which are 286mm and 22mm thick. Would they be the right discs to use with 328i Calipers instead of the 286mm / 12mm solids?

how different are E34 hub carriers? mine runs a 302x22 under a 15" wheel.

My late model e36 323 has the 285 x 22 mm vented discs on the front , and some thinner vented discs on the rear, standard fitment. They work reasonably well.
