Mein Auto: e46 318ti
E46 rear brake discs

Hi everyone, i need help with the rear brakes on my compact, i have swaped in a n42b20 (my car was a 316ti n42b18) and i've seen on realoem that the 318ti has rear ventilated discs 276X19 meanwhile on my compact i have 276x10, do i have to swap only the rear discs or do i have to swap also the brake calipers from the 318ti?

I seen some 318ti has the ventilated rotor and I replaced my friend's car. Make sure when you do the swap, swap also the caliper and brake carrier because the ventilated rotor is thicker than the regular rotor.
