335xi BBK compatibility?

I saw someone had a BBK from a 335i fit his xi.
Is this fairly universal? Is it safe to say that if I find a 335i BBK most likely it will fit my xi?

Stoptech makes an xDrive compatible 355mm setup (rotors, pads, lines, brackets, calipers), front and rear for ~ $4500.

I stare at them online a lot.

I think the Nashin kit has a compatible size too, can't remember.

Right, I've seen xi ones, but I was wondering what makes xi rotors.. xi rotors. I'm sure that most things are the same...

What would be the difference that they would not fit?

Yes. I had to install new brake lines on the front, and that was it.

When you are installing BBK the new brake lines, usually stainless steel, are given. They will come with the kit. Therefore I question your concern.
