F30 Brembo 370mm front brake kit

Hi all,
I've got two sets of F30/F80/M3/M4 brembo 370mm front calipers that i'm thinking of selling.

Set 1:
Complete with barely used pads and brand new performance/zimmermann discs. 750 posted.



Set 2:
Just calipers in same condition as set 1.
550 posted

For illustration purposes i used R99's photo hope he doesn't mind...


These are straight bolt on for all of the below:
- all e9x non m models
- all f3x models
- all f series m3/m4 models (have to be used with m discs)
- all e89 z4 models

haha, yes they are. performance discs are't sided/rotational so the one on the other side will look like it's going the opposite way.

Disc rotation is only defined by the cooling vanes inside the disc. If the vanes are straight the disc can be mounted either way but if the vanes are curved the disc should be mounted with vanes pointing towards the back of the car if you're looking at it's profile from top down.

hope this makes sense ...

It would be a downgrade for my 335i but it is a great kit for a 328i or a118i like I did on mine. For my 118i I put on the 135i fronts and the rears from a 328i. If I didn't already upgrade my wife's 328i to 335i fronts I would have hopped on it!

I'd have to disagree with the downgrade comment.

smaller than stock is a down grade to most.

Going from 1 piston to 6 is an upgrade for most ...

Not quite sure how -5mm in radius qualifies as a downgrade either

More disk surface area for cooling and more surface for pad contact. (Pad contact = friction= stopping power = heat) There are quite a few posts on this very topic. Even BMW discourages the swap to the 6 piston brakes on the 335 for the above stated reasons even though they are a straight swap. either way both sets you are selling will be a great upgrade for someone!
