You might also need to get the corresponding rotor hat as well.
Each caliper is fitted with different pistons based on the cars OEM brake bias as well as the size of the master cylinder.

OEM m3 master cylinder is larger for the front brakes.

Selling a used set and tryin to buy a new set would be very expensive.
Getting a hat won't be so easy. The calipers will likely have much larger pistons than what will be found on a 335i so you will have a noticable increase in pedal travel. It's highly likely that you'll shift the bias frontwards quite a bit as well when using a setup off an m3.


If you're going to go through the work of adapting the system, you might as well find calipers off a totally diff car that can be had for dirt cheap and engineer the system yourself.
