Can You Install M Sport Brakes on factory 435i?

I've got factory 19" wheels (style 442m) that came on my 435i. Is it possible to upgrade to M Sport brakes?

Yes.

Those are one of the wheels that are mandatory for M-Brakes.

I thought 335i and Msport brakes were essentially the same in terms of calipers and rotor size? With the only difference being the dressed up calipers on the Msport?

Hardly mandatory on the 2015 models. Go to the BMW USA website and try to build a 435i coupe with the 19" wheel option and see if it lets you add M Sport Brakes. The minute you do, it defaults you to the 18" wheels which baffles me. Makes me wonder if they don't fit or something.

M Sport brake retrofit is more than calipers, rotors, pads.... If you check realoem.com you will find several other components are different for cars with MSport brakes.

If your car doesn't have MSport brakes and you want them, your best bet is to source the MPerformance brakes.

Or, leave it alone and don't bother.

Guys,

F2x MPBBK upgrade is the same as F3x x35i ie 370mm rotor diameter - fits fine with oem 18" alloys.

PD

So theoretically speaking, if I have a set of brakes off a m235i it is a direct bolt-on for a F30 335 msport?

Where can I buy M-sport brakes? They're the only option I wanted but couldn't manage to get. All I can find are the $2k M-Performance brakes...

Can you list what else is different? I'll assume the master cylinder too at least...
