Brake Upgrade ideas for E90 320i 2005

Current front and rear brakes are coming to the end of life and want some bigger brakes to look nicer behind the wheels.

Was thinking either 335i or M3 brakes? i know the 335i are an easy swap on the front its the rears that im having issues with. would i need the complete set up ie caliper, carrier, discs, pads and handbrake shoes?

can you fit either of those set-ups under a 17" wheel as my winter are 17" summers are 18"

not looking to spend thousands on a BBK as i will never track the car

i went for some 330D brakes, 330mm front 336mm rear, fit under 17" wheels, and were cheap!

I'm interested in this too..

My fronts are due a change and fancy some 335 brakes..

Are master cylinders all the same?

I've got 335 brakes on the front of mine, massive improvement over standard and all in came to about 500, that's including new discs and pads from BMW.

Yes the master cylinders have the same part number throughout the e90 range
