Not sure I agree, but hopefully this info is helpful.

So, how do the B and C pillars look in that car?
Makes sense. The e46 already has a bias that's too far forward. Increasing the rotor size and piston diameter will shift it even farther up. Restoring the balance via rear brakes would probably make the car feel a lot better at the limits
