So front brake retrofit = 100% fine as its essentially the same as PBK (but not slotted/drilled rotors).

Rear brake - I've read that the 135i caliper can be placed on stock rotor for models other than 335/330i. Do you think it's worth a stab with the 135i brakes? I'm thinking front swap + rear calipers on current rotors. Hopefully different calipers on same rotor won't affect safety. Or just be safe and go 135i front kit only? Did you get pad sensors/brake wear sensors as part of your kit?
My 135i brakes were taken straight off my 1er and replaced with the PBK, so it was complete. If i could have used the 135i rear calipers on my stock rear rotors, i would have but my shop could not make them fit. I didn't really care though b/c i was more concerned about making the front fit.

Like i said, the PBK and the stock 135i brakes are essentially the same except for the colour of the calipers and the drilled rotors. I can pretty much guarantee the fronts will work, the rears not too sure. Take a stab at it, what do you have to lose really? If anything you can always sell the set after if it doesn't pan out.

Guaranteed to fit. Just make sure you have a competent mechanic who can do the proper modifications to the spindle and heatshield.

Part of the heatshield needs to be cut, and a small part of the spindle needs to be shaved inorder for the new calipers to fit.
