For m3 brakes you will need calipers carriers discs and pads. You will have to machine 5mm off the carriers I believe to fit. 330 brakes not sure might be straight forward bolt on.

Next option is go for Porsche calipers csl discs and custom brackets to fit.

Will I need 19" wheels if I use CSL discs?

Could I not use 330 discs with Brembo calipers using a custom bracket?

Who makes the brackets?

330 discs and calipers are straight up bolt on, but the backing plates aren't, and your original handbrake shoes won't reach the inside of the 330 discs, equalling no handbrake

330 fronts are a simple bolt on. youll need discs calipers and carriers.

m3 require modding to fit.

if you get some radial mount brembos/ap etc and some custom brackets you can fit 330 discs , this is what I did .

the rears will require new back plates and new handbrake shoes. and calipers and carriers too
