1991 318i V.S 1991 320i

Got a quick question, I have a 1991 320i euro specs and I am in need of new (rear) rotors, pads, and calipers. I am looking on all the american websites ( I'm a soldier stationed in Germany) and all I see are 318i and 325i i was wondering if there is a difference as far as the breaks. The parts off there would be much cheaper then they are here in Germany. Any information anyone could give me would be awesome. Thanks!

The Biggest thing you have to worry about is chassis So if you have an e30 then the breaks for an e30 will fit e36 then e36 breaks

Sorry if I wasn't clear, If you have an e30 then all suspension and breaks will fit, M3 Has bigger better stuff but the but if you have an e30 then shop for e30 parts they will fit...I would double check the rotor size on the between the U.S and Euro Spec to see if there is a difference being that the euro's normally come with more power but i amd sure they will fit.
