From what I've read, the problem isn't the size of the wheels. The attachment points where the brakes bolt to the hub are a different size, so that you basically have to switch over to the complete M3 suspension to get the brakes, and it's not really worth it.

If you are going for the look, there are aftermarket companies that make excellent brakes. If you are looking to track the car, try upgraded pads first. Excellent things have been said about Performance Frictions rotors and pads as a combo, and Cool Carbons pads if you are just looking for pads. I'm trying the CC pads out this weekend at the track.
