Will 330i brakes fit a 328i?

Hi, Will 330i brakes fit a 328i? I have 16 inch wheels. Would this be a upgrade? Or are they the same. Would I need the calipers too. Or just the rotors and pads.

Thank you,

You will need new calipers and bigger wheels in addition to the pads/rotors.

For a 328 it's not worth it.

Ok, I'll just get new 328i rotors and pads. Some idiot that had the car before me put rotors that were too small on the front, so all of the pad doesn't even touch the rotor, wtf. I'm sure just having the right stock parts will make a huge differance.

Front brakes can be retrofitted pretty easily. New calipers and carriers

Rears are a bit tougher. You'd need a 330 trailing arm. Or some kind of adapter to push the ebrake drums out further so that they can work with the 330 rotor hat.

Sounds like your previous owner put 323 rotors on it
