335i brakes in 328i retrofit?

Can I install 335i brakes (Front and rear) in 328i ?
I plan to buy M performance brake for my 335i and sell the stock 335i brakes to 328i owner

Yes u can, cos the US-spec 328i M-sport brake (factory fit) is just the standard 335i brakes with calipers painted in blue with M logos.

OP is located at Indonesia, probably cheaper to get it from someone local.

But the M performance brake rear disc rotor is different for 335i and 328i.

For US-spec factory fit M-sport brakes on a 328i, it's just the stock system from a 335i but with painted calipers.
Wht u saw from that link is the retrofit kit from the M-performance range, which is identical to EU/ROW-spec factory fit M-sport brakes for the 328i, save for the slotted & "drilled" discs & the different coloured calipers.

Stock: 340mm front discs
M-sport: 375mm front discs.

The rears on the M-sport are 345mm w/dual piston fixed caliper. I think the stock rears are 330 on sliding calipers.

Does anyone know if 335i callipers/discs will fit on a 120d m-sport?
Ive seen it done here, but cant seem to find any exact info of the conversion.

I'm assuming you found a seller by now, but if not, I have a practically brand new (~900 miles) set of OE brakes (complete set, calipers & rotors) from a 2013 335i M-Sport Line available for sale (I upgraded to M performance brakes).
