Along with DSC other systems are affected by the brakes... from BMW's press release for the F30...

The brake system is further supported by various state-of-the-art electronic safety systems, which are integrated into the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system for improved driving dynamics and safety. The DSC system incorporates the following functions: Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Automatic Stability Control (ASC), Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and Cornering Brake Control (CBC), along with start-off assist, brake drying and an electronic limited slip function for the rear differential, which can be activated using the “DSC Off” button.
I'd venture to say the above are the reasons the car needs to be coded.

BTW, the four wheel M performance brakes are simply amazing.

Would it be better to install 335i brakes or M performance breaks on my F30 328i , 2013?
I kind of don't like soft breaking pads etc on 328i?

Why not just pay the 1.5-2 hours and let the dealer code it?
They code stuff like this all the time for people that are DIY.

what about those who installed aftermarket BBKs (brembo, stoptech, etc)? do they need coding as well?
mod = crack

Same situation here. Thinking of upgrading to Alacon bbk.
My E90 upgrade to m-performance bbk did not do the coding. It runs fine.
