The BBK is pretty much universal throughout all the e9x 335 units (n54/n55/i/xi/etc).
I have the Stoptech BBK front and rear 6 pot / 4 pot. Love it.

Great stopping power and looks awesome.

For the money, you could go Rotora, Stoptech, or the other one (I forgot the brand).

Brembo costs a lot more, but from what I heard you'd be fine with any upgrade for the proper use.

As far as LSD, yes. I don't and cannot have it, but go for it!

You should've asked "What is the best lsd upgrade for the 2011 e90 335? Also, is a BBK worth it?"

I would've said: Quaife and no, a BBK is overkill unless you regularly track the car. And who the F would track a 335i anyway? That's like wearing cowboy boots to play soccer.

Good way to put it.
BBK is for performance and looks.
LSD is a good item to have for performance and fun.
