M sport brakes or Hk speakers

Hi everyone, on order a F31 eb2' 19", m brakes, heated seats, xenons, pro nav,tinted windows and a few more!
Just wanted more opinions on if I should ditch the brakes and add Hk instead. I would love them both but budget already blown. Thanks in advance

Why not budget one for now, the other when funds permit ? :-)

I would say the brakes now.. you'll need them coming upto the winter
Then.. after NY, start on the HK :-)

Shame I can't practice what I preach

Standard brakes are going to be more than adequate. Get the HK.

The brakes can easily be retro fitted, the H&K can't (although a non OEM or Alpine upgrade can be). Upgraded brakes are even less necessary in winter. Better natural cooling and lower speeds on slippery roads.

I would also reckon the standard brakes are just fine, the sounds are something you will notice every time in the car so go for that upgrade.

What engine?

If they weren't a different colour and didn't scream 'M Sport brakes!' I doubt anyone would pick them!
