This is a really nice option. Not everyone needs a BBK. I was looking for something like this some time ago...and I still am

So these are Brembo 98.5030.40 calipers, right ? They seem to be around $350-$400 a piece.

I wonder if it will be possible to buy only the brackets and the other fittings used to install the calipers ? I mean, the Brembo caliper could be found cheaper in Europe for people living in Europe...not sure it would make sense to import from the US.

IMO: Here is how this is going to pan out: HP may provide the "kit" w/ the needed adapters and then supply the adapter separate for people

The calipers came from Germany regardless (plus according to this thread or the other 3 w/ the same subject) this same caliper per the part # is used with a lot of other vehicles so that would also lead me to think of checking junk yards for those cars and then be able to purchase the adapter and or the rotors and DIY

This is interesting. Looks like I will hold off modding my brakes and see what develops here. Any idea on price? Pad and rotor option?

Interesting...I just want a caliper for the rear that will let me run Hawk Blue's on all four corners.

Yes, please! All I need is a shiny black (maybe even white). I can paint them on my own. I don't need cosmetics. I just want a little more protection from brake fade.

4-piston calipers?! Sexy!

Do you realy think that the F30 performance caliper is the same as this Brembo caliper ? They may look the same, but...

Dude, are you blind? The Brembo part numbers are clearly visible on the pic that Harold posted!

I just thought that Harold bought the Brembo calipers from outside BMW network (because he realized that the F30 calipers are very similar) and tries to fit them on an e90. I mean, if they were bought from BMW, do you think that BMW would supply the Brembo brochure with them ?

They are not the same.

Just look up the Brembo caliper under that number.. They don't even share the same brake pad.

false advertising w/ the brembo label

so here's the BMW part numbers correct:

Left - 34116850931
Right - 34116850932

Front brake pads: 34116850850

So the Brembo tag has nothing to do with the BMW 4-piston that HPA shows pictured?

Also, why is it not painted Blue or Red with the BMW logo? Is this to say that all F30 brakes are the exact same as the F30 Performance brakes minus the paint/logo?

I want to buy the blue performance setup exactly as pictured in the show cars. Is this available and will it fit an E90? I have no problem buying the adapter kit from HPA if that is all that is necessary.

Based on the last few posts, I'm confused as to what is being offered.

+1 looks like a good option if you don't want to take the heavy BBK price tag. Although the caliper is only half of what makes a BBK superior on a racetrack.

OT: I tried to pm you but your inbox seems to be full!
