135 brakes vs 335 brakes

Is it true that the 135's brakes are better performing than the 335's?? Is it possible to fit the calipers of the 135 on the 335?? They look so much better....

No.
The rotor is smaller.
Less swept area under the pads.
They look better and they will fit if you swap caliper and rotor.
It is a cosmetic upgrade and a performance downgrade.

Rear will need to be customized for parking brake as well, not worth it.

Bigger rotor and larger swept area.
The 135 brakes are pretty but not as effective as the 335.
