Has anyone done this? front and rear. What is necessary to do this? is it a direct swap? or additional parts are required?

Yes, I have on a '99 328i which has the same brakes as a 2001+ 325i.

front and rear
Fronts only.

What is necessary to do this?

330 front calipers, carriers, rotors, and pads

is it a direct swap? or additional parts are required?
The fronts are a direct swap. The rears are not thanks to a different diameter parking brake assembly. You may be able to swap the entire parking brake/bacing plate assembly but I have not tried it.

is it worth just getting the OEM Caliper and Carriers, while going with a rotor like Zimmerman OEM size, and a dustless pad of some kind?

aprox. cost of an upgrade like this? :D

that's exactly what I would do, and was going to do, until I realized that my OEM 16" rims wouldn't have enough caliper clearance, should I revert to stock. :thumbup:
