Thoughts?

I can go drilled or slotted, haven't really decided.

Any other break recommendations?

In all honesty, I would like to get an opinion on what brakes I should get.

Those are so expensive, nice but very expensive. Are you tracking your car a lot?

Dinan BBK is simply rebranded Brembo's with the Dinan mark-up. If you like these brakes just buy the Brembo equivalent and save money. You should also consider Stop Tech and the new BBK coming out from R1.

How much would those run me? Would you recommend BBKs?

Are you going for look or performance? If you are going for performance than this is overkill, the stock 328 breaks are more than adequate for a 328/325.

I would only recommend getting a BBK if you track your car.

There are multiple vendors that can sell you a Brembo or Stop Tech BBK.

At te moment I'm looking for similar performance or maybe better but a nicer look. Don't like the stock rotors and calipers.

I won't be tracking for a little while at least. If I'm not going to get BBKs(not 100% decided yet) anything that has solid performance and looks.

BBK is a lot of money to spend for looks.. Doesn't sound like you're going to need improved fade resistance and more powerful braking. You can improve the look of your brakes by pulling the calipers apart, sand blasting them and painting them and buying xdrilled rotors which are inferior to oem blanks.

A cheaper option would be to get the BMW performance brakes kit
I think it can give you a BBK look but with 1/2 of the cost of the real ones.
A even cheaper option would be to get 135i stock brakes, which is identical to the performance ones except the color.
You can find a set of used ones on 1addict going for ~1100 USD

If you are going for performance, then upgrading to 335i stock brake should make you happy.

If you run 18's, the stock 335i brakes can look nice or at least the rotor size will fill the wheels. The performance is great for street and this is probably the least expensive option to change to as well as maintain because eventually the rotors and pads wear out. Can't imagine replacement rotors for a bbk is going to be less than $100.
