Since I started working at Volvo not too long ago I have come across the oppurtunity to buy some Volvo R Calipers at a VERY attractive price. They are pretty big and are made by Brembo. I can purchase all four calipers for less than an m3 front brake conversion and these are much bigger than the E36 M3 caliper.

Now how much do you guys think it would cost to make those fit on an E36? I don't have a picture but I'll try to find one soon

Best bet is to talk to T-SPEC, hes good with this sorta thing, i'm assuming you'd have to get the prper size front rotor, and one more thing, can't remember right now, but think about it, cause if a whole front brake conversion is still cheaper AND bigger, then do it!
