335 brakes on a 325

I can't really find anything about this. But could a 335 rotor front and back fit a 325xi? Or would I need to change some stuff?

There's plenty about this swap on the forum. Yes you can do it, but 335's have a bigger rear parking brake, so you would need to either do some custom work to keep it, or ditch it altogether. Unless you have a wagon like me, in which case the rears are a direct swap just like the fronts.

I just did the swap last week.

How does those big rotors look with regular brakes? Or you changed that too

You need to change to 335 calipers as well, of course.

Find someone with a 335 that upgraded to brembos or something and offer to buy their stock setup. I lucked out and happened to meet a nice guy who did just that and sold me his old stoptech stuff for a deal.
