It bolts up, but your brake bias might be off. Wouldn't matter if you're not tracking the car though. Lemme know.

How would the bias be worse on a 330? 330's rear brakes are stronger than those on other 3 series cars...I would think a 330 would be the car the kit would be most useful for, just to give the front end more stopping power...

Yes, but the front brakes on the 330 are also bigger than other 3 series. Putting this kit on a 330 would throw the bias to the rear because the pistons are sized for the smaller 3 series rear setup.

Still not totally getting it, but I'llm take your word on it.

Free bump

Go to stoptech's website and read up on brake bias.

A free bump as well as some clarification...

Both of you are right on the topic. Yes BBK will throw off brake bias but not so much on the E46 330 or 325 etc.

E46 brake bias is, fortunately (or unfortunately for track junkies), further controlled by the consortium of ABS, DSC, CBC and ASC+T. Think of it as a dynamic biasing. But of course one can argue there is a upper bound for the biasing.

Coming from personal experiences, for street or track, these ST BBK as fronts and 330 rear factory calipers will do just fine.
