Always believed that BMW should've had these on at least their ///M models so it's nice to see BMW finally allowing BMW owners to customize their cars to the smallest details like calliper covers.

we have seen sooooo many factory performance upgrades on this car, and it just barely hit the market.
Some good news there

Yes, you are correct, the other calipers should be available by themselves

But with these M performance ones they are selling a retrofit kit with all the parts required to convert the standard brakes. These kits are only available with the 3 colors.

You could probably buy the blue calipers and all the other parts by themselves, but this may come to a lot more than the cost of the kit.

I do not think that you understood... the F3x M3 will use completely different calipers and rotors from the E9x M3 based on the information gathered so far.

Really hoping BMW gives us xDrive guys some love this time around, although I'm not holding my breath that these brakes will be available for xDrive models

This. As far as I know, Mercedes and Audi have been doing this for a while now with their in-house tuner divisions while BMW just started with the F10 M5 whether it be just brake calipers/covers or actual performance brakes.

Unless I am mistaken, these will only be an upgrade for the F30 328? I think they are the same size as the 335 aren't they. Like the new M performance brakes for the E9x, only an upgrade if you don't have a 335. Just colored, no performance enhancements?

Brake discs are larger than the stock 335 brakes, and you get fixed piston calipers at the rear (as opposed to floating calipers).

Thanks for the color options. If they offered the same color options for the performance brakes on the E92, I probably would have ordered a set.

What is different about xDrive that would cause BMW not to offer M Sport Brakes and this upgrade kit for xDrive models?

This is good news that BMW is offering this upgrade and in 3 different color options. Is there any info on pricing for these brakes? If not, when will they announce pricing?

Still a while.
They will probably only officially announce the brakes at the Geneva show and pricing will be after that.

Mercedes and Audi have been offering upgraded factory exhausts, intakes, suspension components, brakes, aero parts, steering wheels, and other interior bits as retrofit items for their cars in Europe?

I'm with Ja///mes on this one. A regular 3 series should not have better performing or looking brakes than an actual ///M. BMW should get onboard and offer performance upgrades for their real ///M cars before they offer ///M parts to the rest of the fleet. Where's the exclusivity?

They make all their money on the 3er, so just hold tight, those changes are yet to come... Give it time.
