Have any of you guys tried fitting f30 calipers? I think they would bolt on with just enlarged holes on the knuckle and I think they weigh less than these. Although only 4 piston and not sure how the pad area compares.

Just because they bolt up doesn’t mean they work to safely and properly stop the car. There is a lot more into brake design than bolt patterns.

Are there 2 or 4? It is just for the fronts correct?
Just for the fronts. Swapping them and keeping the stock rear keeps your bias where it needs to be to not require additional changes to the brake system. With just the fronts you’ll notice a huge improvement on braking alone.
