String a few roundabouts together and you had no brakes at all!
The brakes on my E90 330i were fine for everyday road use. If tracking the car or wanting more performance from really from really fast road use. Then yes pad/fluids/lines upgrade. Then if that isnt enough then BBK. Obviously the brakes on the 335 are better than the 330 but maybe you thought they were awful because you have a modded 335. Where as OP has a 25i I believe?
