///M3 calipers on 330Ci ZSP? Might need new calipers.

Sup guys,

So Ive got a 2004 330Ci ZSP and under most braking situations the wheel will jiggle a little bit, but more at highway speed. Its not wheels, tires, or alignment cause that was all redone after the car was rear-ended. I dont have many records from the PO on maintenance, but the brake fluid looks clean, and the rotors aren't new but their not about to go (lil lip on em).

Ive got a friend who has some E46 M3 brake calipers from his dads maybe 2003 or 2004 M3. Their just in his basement and haven't been on a car any time recently. If it looks like I would need them, could I use them on my car? realoem lists both brake rotors at 325mm, but mine are 325x25 and the m3 are 325x28... dont know how useful that info is but there it is.

I read in the m3 parts on a non-m thread that they can be fitted pretty easily, but will require a bigger carrier... still true?

I havent had either brakes looked at (I obviously dont know much) but maybe my oem brakes just need a rebuild, and considering the age maybe the M3 brakes would too...

Hopefully someone with some knowledge can chime in
