Na, it's a denzil + it would need splitters and a tint.

Looks good, specially against the black rims, should have swopped the springs whilst the wheels were off though

No mate, they do fit however. They are not as good as the standard 335d brakes. 10mm smaller and not as thick either.

There an upgrade for every model 3 series apart from 335's and M3.

Agreed; I wouldn't put them on a 335d even though they would physically fit.

Car needs dropping!

They look better than the standard 335d brakes, do they do an upgrade for us? I've got the 230 wheels so brakes very noticable, oh and rusty hubs!

Nope, only what people have told me. People wil try sell them to 335 owners of course. So be careful.

They are thinner, and smaller. They over heat quicker also. (Compared to 335 brakes)

Thats why there not offered for 335's. There not better.

Funny How AP's are not smaller than discs on the cars they make upgrades for.
