One of the more exciting items from the full BMW M Performance Parts catalog for the F30 3 series are the M Performance Brakes. These are Brembo 4-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the front axle and 2-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the rear axle. They come in red, yellow, or orange and feature the M logo on the calipers.
The internally-vented lightweight sports rotors measure 370 x 30 mm (diameter x thickness) on the front axle and 345 x 24 mm on the rear axle. Unlike the M Sport brake discs, the M Performance brake discs are cross drilled for better grip and grooved to reduce water film build up. The BMW M Performance sports brake system is only approved in combination with at least 18" aluminum wheels and unfortunately do not fit the E9X generation cars (including M3).
The M Performance BBK just became available to the North American market and F30POST member nexusonemeover and Turner Motorsports have fitted a pair on their 328i and 335i, respectively. Here are some photos of the rotors and calipers, installed and uninstalled. Initial impressions are good - providing both aesthetic improvements and some performance gains. They chose the yellow versions.
The BMW M Performance Brakes for the F30 retail at $2,300, but we've already seen them being sold for sub-$2000.
