I will let his words speak for themselves:

Too bad, I really thought these would look good on the 335i.

It's the reality of big brake kits. Unless you are pushing the hell out of your car on the track you probably won't notice much of a difference from the OEM brakes with some basic upgrades. On the street you will barely be able to tell at all since you hardly push the limits of the brakes. If you're using a more dedicated pad you'll even have worse performance on the street with any BBK simply because you're not heating the brakes up enough.

I stretched the truth by saying they suck (they obvisouly don't suck), just to prove a point, but at the end of the day if you need a brake upgrade because you're fading the hell out of your brakes at the local track while running time attacks then these aren't for you. Some people will disagree and say these brakes are a huge upgrade, but to keep things simple in my books these are a Cosmetic upgrade and a performance sidestep for the 335i.
