Question Use '98 M Roadster parts on '01 (strut bar and front rotors)?

Will the following parts off of a '98 M Roadster fit on an '01 M Roadster?

1) Dinan Front Strut bar (will the S54 engine make a difference?)

2) Euro Motorsport floating front rotors (do the '01s have bigger brakes)?

If you want to sell the Front Strut Brace (Brushed), let me know. I'd be interested in taking it off your hands for the right price.

The strut bar will probably not fit.
My Lumenique bar on my 99 wouldn't clear the vacuum rail fitting on the 01.
Try it and see...

The rotors should fit. The brake specs were not changed, in fact, I bought the original front rotors off Ron Stygar's 01 Coupe to use on my 99.

Thanks for the input guys

I'll check with Dinan on the strut bar. zanary, if I can't use it and it's brushed (did they make them in chrome as well?), then I'm sure we'd be able to work something out. I've got to get my hands on the parts first.
