Search m brakes for 328i

Hi peopleeeee

A big hello from luxembourg.

So i just want to say that i search the M sport brakes for my car. I buy it before the m sport kit was out here in luxembourg.
If somebody don't need them ( upgrade or change to m performance) i would love to buy them.
One question, is there a difference from europe an us m sport brakes? Thanks a lot guys)(

Yes, you do not want US MSport brakes as they are standard sizing as base/sport/luxury/modern lines. Only difference is the MSport has euro brake pads. Other parts of the world are different.

Wouldn't the 335i msport be an upgrade to the 328?

Any 335 brake set would be an upgrade to the 328. But you will increase weight and unsprung weight. So I am not running out to do the swap, maybe when used prices are low and for the aesthetics of filling up my 19" wheels.

The only reason I would do a 335i brake upgrade on my 328i would be for ease of changing pads at the track.

Problem is no one knows what a fair price is for them. You can buy MPerformance fronts from the BMW dealers on eBay for about $1700-1800 shipped. So I get turned off by the idea of spending anywhere near that for take offs of a 335.

Once the market floods a bit more in 1-2 years, the prices will be MUCH lower.

I talked with the folks at turner Motorsports. They did a series where they were upgrading an f30. As part of that they did the m performance brakes. I asked what they did with the take offs. They sell used parts @ 50% off. So I figured that's a starting point. Just throwing that out there

Do you guys (possible buyer and possible seller) think $1000 is a fair price for the stock MSport brakes?

Unlikely cos if someone has gone the length to order option 2NH from the factory they're not likely to upgrade to sth else.

I have the M Sport brakes, but for it to be worth it for me to upgrade I need about €1500 for them and then you could buy the M Performance ones for not much more... So it will be hard to find the M Sport brakes, but easier to find regular 335i brakes from people who have upgraded.
