M sport Brake Issue

Hi guys ,

I bought Msport calipers from a forum member here and fitted to My 328i (Lux trim) they have been good for year an half , Fast forward To last week i had to put my foot down hard on the brakes and heard this loud grinding sound and brakes felt that they did not bite enough.

No issue or warnings came for Pads but i think the Rotors may need replacement as driving downhill had a bit of wobble on brake application.

My concern is that am i missing any coding ? , this was not suggested at the time of Install since they are plug and pay scenario. general driving at 60Km/h or even 110Km/h is okay and no issues . Its only hard braking which feels a bit lacking , i am concerned and not doing any spirited driving now .

I am going to get it checked but i thought i would get opinions here as well .

Also Found this which is closer to my case , I do not have the rear brakes though , they are standard :

335i Retrofit. Grey Brembo calipers, 340mm front rotors.
Stock, take-off 335i front brakes will bolt up to the 328i/428i. These were a 4-piston grey Brembo caliper and 340mm rotor. We don't recommend this unless matching rear brakes are installed and the ABS/DSC software is updated to 328i M Sport version.
