Just go to realoem.com and find your vehicle and get the correct part number.

Then a Part Number Search on one of the online BMW dealers (like BMW Partz Direct, http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...?siteid=214760). Voila - a list of all the BMWs that used the part.

Mein Auto: 1999 M Coupe
They are not. I know for a fact that M brakes are different than non M brakes and (don't quote me on this one) I think the 4 cylinder models also have a different sized braking system.

The 3.0 have larger rotors but I'm not sure if the calipers themselves are larger or the same.
