2. e80 (135i) performance brakes (downgrade - also 338mm)
3. wait to see if F30 brakes can be retrofitted.

Have considered aftermarket (stoptech/brembo), but don't like the idea of having to buy their rotors indefinitely. Plus I HATE the idea of paying up the wazoo to advertise their product on my calipers. I'd be happier if they said nothing. It just gives a cheap look to the car, so I've pretty much crossed off this option

Curious if anything has found any better alternatives that I'm missing here?
Have you looked into the Racing Brake two-piece front rotors? Upgrade your pads and brake lines and you are done.
