Default Rotora BBK on my 02 M3

I just bought an 02 M3 and would like to put my Rotora BBK from my 04 Acura TL. I want to see if this is a universal kit, and I can pull it off the TL, and put it on the M3. Is it not compatible? Any fitment issues since the TL is FWD, and the M3 is RWD?

It is a 13" Rotora Big brake kit 4 piston with 2 piece Rotors. 330 mm
Drilled/slotted rear rotors

As I did not purchase the BBK for the TL, I am not sure of any additional information regarding the dimensions unless I pull it off the car.



Thanks in advance!

Check the brake bias between the M3 and the TL I'm sure they're no where near the same so it likely wouldn't be ideal. The brakes will clear the wheels and everything however you'd need to make new brackets for the calipers. In short, it's not really worth it, pull them, sell them, get one for the M3 and smile all the way home from the bank

I'm going to guess the bias is off, just given the fact that the TL is a FF car, and the M3 is FR. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable about brakes can come in and do the bias calculation.
