I believe you need more then just the calipers. Like a bracket to hold the calipers (im guessing this will need to be custom), as well as rotors and possibly a few other small things.

It was my understanding that the front brakes just bolt on, as both the ms3 and mz3 have the same steering knuckle part#...it was also my understanding that the rear brakes were the same on both cars....all I need are the front calipers, and I will purchase aftermarket rotors...

I just completed this swap on an 04. They don't make rotors for the front yet, but will be coming out with them in a couple weeks. I have some on back order, but, now I'm just using stock rotors with a set of Hawk HPS. You don't need anything custom. Direct fit with the entire caliper assembly.

If the rest of the brake system isn't identical you could be messing with ABS, DSC, TCS, etc. I'm not sure what the MZ3 has. Different pressures and such can make things behave strangely.

I had to hurry and install them before my surgery, so I spent the whole day to get the Front sway in and front brakes. There are pics on this topic too. Oh yeah, and they do make rotors for this already, they just didn't make the ones I wanted until March. http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=136930.0
