Slade13 something is wrong. Did you use the calipers off the other e36 as well as the brackets or your original ones? Did your ti have non vented brakes originally?

I didn't use the calipers from the car that I got the brackets from. I'm guessing that they are different. I'll order 318is calipers and another set of pads in a few weeks.

Spade13 yes that's your problem. Your 318ti came with solid rotors that are much thinner than the 22mm thick vented rotors you fitted and the calipers basically match the thickness. The brackets/carriers match the proper thickness calipers. Now I am not sure off hand if the 318is has the vented or non-vented rotors and calipers so be sure before you order them. I do know that e36 325/328 calipers are the proper size for vented rotors.

The weird thing is that ecs tuning lists the calipers fitting a wide range of models including the ti.

The thing is that they could list the ti for both the narrow and wide caliper because the late produced models came with the vented rotors while the earlier ones didn't. Also I rarely trust those tables without some serious cross referencing to confirm.

Yeah, I thought about that listing with the newer ti's being included because of the vented rotors. Well anyway, I ordered rebuilt calipers and brackets for a 328i a little bit ago. Hopefully it all works.

I put on the new calipers and brackets on yesterday. An eyeball measurement showed that the original Ti calipers are different. It all works now.

I'm bringing it back. All this talk about brakes and what fits and what doesn't. I figured this would be a good place to ask this question since its sticky'd.

Will the factory or even the Z3 spare work with the larger brake upgrades?

Which brake upgrade mean? The front e36 6 cyl will work easily with 15s and the spare. I have seen E46 330 front BBK 325MM X 25MM on a 16" with a spacer.
