The first thing u gotta do is get rid of those crappy pirelli cinturatos. Good tires will really showcase those brakes.

Why couldn't the E9x M3 come with these brakes...or at least these calipers. Our calipers look awful!

To me the calipers look the same only painted. I hope I'm wrong, but they look exactly like the ones being removed other than color.

If you do a hard stop from high speeds and then get back up to speed, the brakes will cool back down very quickly. You'd need to be really hard on the brakes without much 'rest' in order to feel any fade.

Will you be selling your STOCK brakes and what did it set you back dollar wise?

Feel any difference in braking distance?

I feel the same, I think I paint mine and get the stickers ... wait for it ... on second thought I have a bit to go before my breaks wear out os I'm good for now ... besides I never see my brakes when I drive

Apologies if already asked but do the calipers come in a matte black or gunmetal finish?

Not currently on the F30. Red, yellow, or orange.

I hope they're more durable than the previous piss poor performance breaks (offered for the E9X range for models below 335i and 335d) also made by Brembo. The M badging will certainly impress fan boys though
