xDrive vs RWD Rear Calipers

I believe my rear brake calipers are bent as they only hit the outer half of the rotors. I was thinking about buying some second hand calipers off of an f30 328i RWD. Will they work with my 328xi?

The calipers don't hit the rotors, the pads do. I can't see how calipers could get bent. Take it into a local brake shop that does free brake inspections to find out what the problem is.

I was meaning the pads only hit the outer half of the rotors. I did take it in to get inspected and was told they think the caliper bracket was bent. It looks as if the caliper is at an angle. The part of the brake pad that hits the inside of the rotor is unworn.
