I love the brakes on my 330. I'd definitely recommend them.

Just remember if you install these you can't run most 16" wheels.

I've had a lot of people asking me for pictures, so I dug out the boxes from under a pile of stuff in my garage and snapped a few pics so you guys can see the product... You can see that they are a little dirty, but that's to be expected. Otherwise, everything is there, and everything is in mint condition when clean...

Enjoy!

People sometimes think that they are different, but the only difference is that the 330 uses a larger parking brake than the 325, 323, 328. So, it will fit, but you'll have a little left over room for the parking brake on the rears. No biggie.

The mounting points for the carriers are the same on the 325 and the 330, both in the same exact location on the trailing arm. So, this is a simple plug and play swap, with no modification necesary.
Are you positive that 330 rear carriers fit on the 323/325/328 cause I'm going to be doing this mod soon, and I've seen a lot of post saying you have to do the 330/328 combo.

See post #5. Yes. I'm pretty sure. Call the dealer or an independent shop to confirm what I've said before buying though.

Both sets still for sale...

Well, they look kind of dirty, becasue they
ve been through one winter up north, but once they are cleaned, they're flawless. I have about 10K miles of light road use on them. They have never been tracked, or otherwise used hard or abused.

If you want them, I'll give you a real good deal... I just want them out of my garage now!!!

they will fit the rears, however you WILL lose your handbrakes, so a big no no if you are going to put them onto a stick 325.

how much work to get the handbrakes working again. Is it simply getting the bigger handbrake shoes and adjuster?

I think he coming home now. Not paying for shipping, too heavy and costly.

That's right. I was not in touch with your friend. If you rethink your position, you know where to find me...

Thanks for the interest.
