Brake Upgrade

Hello guys, are there any brake upgrades that are a direct fit to the E92 325d like M3/335d brake setups?

Cheers,
H

335 calipers will fit, but 135 calipers are better - they're 6 pot IIRC.

Aren't they using a smaller disc like on the PBMW kit?

I'm happy with my 335 setup, nice improvement of the garbage stock setup (no match for the stopping power needed for a 330D IMO)

Not sure about the 135 disc size, but being 6-pot calipers they'll stop better, for longer, than a 1-pot caliper with a slightly bigger disc.

Thats why I went 335s. While you shouldn't read/trust everything thats said, I would probably agree with you. Still happy I went 335s..

F30 brakes look appealing non the less!
