Nice Kit. If I wasn't getting rid of my E46 I would get these.

Are those the same bmw performance rotors that are for the 330? I would like to know in case I buy the kit and decide to part some of it out.

Our team here at ECS developed the kit to use these particular rotors. But the calipers themselves can handle at least 338mm, but that would require a different bracket than the one we provide.

The rotors included in the kit are the 'old' BMW Performance Rotors which would come on the 330.

Can you offer a 355mm kit? I would jump on that immediately if you can.

They would need to get new brackets made to accept 355mm rotors.




I actually ordered this kit.

This is correct. Currently we do not offer brackets which would allow larger rotors to be used, but I'll ensure my R&D Department knows you guys are wanting to go even bigger!

Once you have brackets/355 or larger available, I will definitely pull the trigger! I've always told myself if I ever go BBK, it must be yellow and what better than OEM BMW stuff?

When/If you guys make a bigger setup, I hope I can get discount for brackets/Rotors!!! And if you do the rears..


I will be sure to take some pics for sure.

Why are you guys only offering this in one color and only a set for the front? I know the stopping power will increase significantly, but adding a set for the rear would be even better. Would hate to have a BBK up front and in the rear the small puny oem brakes. Would love to see these in blue and also a set for the rear. I would actually consider getting a set than. It's like buying a stage 1 from VF for a non m and being stuck at stage 1 for the rest of your life lol.

They're simply reselling OEM BMW Performance Calipers in this kit. BMWP doesn't manufacture them in any other colors, nor do they make the calipers for the rear. Rather challenging for a reseller/distributor to offer items that don't exist.

I believe I saw a rear caliper set for these but no brackets are available at this time. I saw the rear caliper set on ECS a couple days ago but I cant find it anymore. Im pretty sure its for the new models but if ECS makes the bracket, Im sure its possible.

Considering the rear 135i calipers are just single piston, I don't see the benefit of them.

PRDesignsTony - I'll add to what mtnbound said and say that I myself had only a front BBK for the longest time (Vorsteiner never made a CF edition Brembo BBK for the rear for my car) and from both a performance and safety standpoint there were absolutely no issues (I know you said you would hate having a front BBK only with OEM brakes in the rear).
However I finally got around to installing a rear BBK with the calipers painted silver so it's close enough of a match and I'm happy now, lol.
