F30 Brembo on E9x ?

Can anyone confirm that F30 Brembo (335) fit on E9x platform ?
I'm interested in the plain ones, not the "Performance version"

I might pick up a set, just want to make sure they fit first

The caliper will bolt up no problem. You'll need to either grind a few mm off the bottom of the outside brake pad or replace the rotor with a F30 rotor. The E92 rotor has a smaller rotor face with a "bump" closer to the mounting surface, the F30 rotor does not.

^Any issues running smaller rims? such as 17's?

I plan on doing this soon but my winters are 17's

I never tried 17"s but the fit is kind of tight on the 18"s so I'd assume they wouldn't fit.

Judging my the clearance on those 18's...i would say that 17's should fit. I had a G35 coupe, before my BMW, that had OEM 18's with the OEM Brembo and the 17's would fit. It was definitely close, but no problems at all.

Please ignore this comment. Brake-Wheels fitment depends on rotor height, caliper size, wheel design and offset. Those brakes are very unlikely to fit under OEM BMW 17" for the 3 series. They will will fit in the barrel but the spokes won't clear the caliper. You will need 17" with low offset around +30mm

Yes, please disregard my post. I clearly did not have my brain turned on lol probably the worst post ever.

FWIW though, the m-sport and m-performance rotors are the same size. 370mm x 30mm. If this can help anyone calculate rather or not it will fit on a 17" wheel.

To follow up on my post though the G35 had 324mm x 30mm rotor size and the 17 inch wheel barely...just barely fit.

Nismo - You are wrong my friend.
The Performance brakes are indeed 370mm
As for the m sport brakes there are two options:
340mm front (same as 2series msports - came with smaller engine models) and will fit 17inch f30 wheels.
370mm fron that came with 335i and will fit 18inch wheels - couldnt find any e90 wheel that would fits without shaving the caliper a bit on the upper side.
The stock f30 grey calipers are 370mm
