Do M4 rear brake calipers from a M235i fit a 2014 435i?

Im new to this forum and a new owner of my 435I. I'm just curious if the rear brake caliper from an M4 woukd fit onto my rear of my 435I. The compatibility is confusing because the calipers don't name the f32 but name the 2 series on bmws website for the M4 caliper, but the normal calipers fit the 2 series and the f32..... Has anyone done this change? Am I wasting my time?

Thanks,
Bart

Have you tried comparing the part number of the M caliper with that of F32 M-performance/M-Sprt rear caliper?

Personally I opt for M-perf bbk kit.

Just got home.

Real OEM suggests they're the same. Different part no because of different color but the same. I'm assuming you're talking about the 2-piston rear caliper.

34216860738 and 34216860737 are the part numbers.

They wouldn't be and those are not the numbers. Try realoem. com and click on the part number for the caliper. It'll cross reference other numbers for other models.
