M Performance Brake option

What I'd like to know is, if I specify 18" wheels on my 330d M Sport (going for comfort and on costs for replacement tyres) and I opt for the M Brake option, when winter comes can I fit winter tyre/wheels onto them without the brakes fouling? I'm assuming that the winter tyres would be fitted to 17" rims as the aspect ratio of the tyres are taller, so as to keep the correct speedo indication.

There is nothing to say you can't stick to 18" wheels for your winter set too, looks better too as 17" on an F31 looks a bit weedy for 4 months of the year.

I have 18"s as my winter set with M Sport Brake option, when I had them fitted it didnt look like 17's would have got over the brakes.

I think you will find 18" smallest

I think 18" wheels are the smallest that will fit; I'd just use the 18s for winters, I have 18s on Bridgestone Blizzaks and they performed brilliantly in the recent snow!

I have the upgraded brakes and winter wheels 18", fit no problem, 17" may not fit though.

17's winters should fit (as they do on my M135i)

I took some convincing though, as the M Brake option is 17" in size

When ordering my new car this was the option I was undecided upon. I loved the visual look, but the cost and driving type (pootling to a and from work) meant I ended up leaving them out. Hope I don't live to regret it.

Standards are fine, and disc replacement on the M Sports is Mahoooosive

What's the spec difference between the standard and upgraded brakes as they do look quite impressive?
