Hi guys. Having a problem with the front brakes on our 2001 32. Can anybody remember if their 32 had/has two piston sliding calipers or 4 piston calipers? I've bought a kit to replace the sliding caliper pins but they are different to the ones fitted. The set on the car are a setscrew sliding through a steel sleeve whereas the commonly available ones are one piece with a larger thread that won't fit the caliper mounting bracket (or brake anchor). One option is to buy new mounting brackets which will allow the new bolts to fit. Any advice/experiences?
Thanks.

I am sure someone with a 32 will pop in and correct or confirm, but it it is my understanding that the 32 used the Brembo C32 type calipers that are four piston in a solid housing. I think the 320 would have used sliding calipers.
