If you ask me - if the new look is worth the price than go for it otherwise the money's not really worth the performance difference. Just me though.
Ah okay. Still my brakes (especially the calipers) really stand out in a bad way. I'll definitely upgrade but I'll wait til my current rotors need it.
My brakes in their entirety were coming up in the winter. Figured it would cost $1k cdn to go all oem so it made sense (to me) to spend another $1400 cdn on top to get the MP upgrade.

Oh that makes sense. Just the pads or the rotors too? I got the car in May and they gave me new rear rotors so it'll be a while before it's needed.

Does anyone know the original color code? I'm going to paint again and I want to get the same color, I also need to get the original stickers. Does anyone know where to buy the same model and size?

Why not spend the money on Brembos?

I don't want to argue just for the sake of it, but isn't the front brake bigger ?
When you want to purchase a winter setup, they ask to see if you have the M Performance or not.
When you have the M Performance, you're not able to install 17" as a winter setup.

If it's not the case, I may be tempted to install M Performance brake after all...
The m sport is 340mm front rotor and the m performance is 370mm

the M-Sport of some models are also 370mm rotor in front. Generally the six-cylinder models and Europe 328i/330i.
M Performance are always 370mm rotors for any engine.

I was searching for one with m-sport brakes, but couldn't pass on the minty 9,145 mile AW m-sport f32 I found a few weeks ago...although I must say I have been highly impressed with the non msport brakes it came with.... it would look cooler with the blue brakes, but honestly I don't think they would work noticibly better for just every day driving or canyon carving.

I can see why the reviews say they felt the same.....

Is that the OEM M Performance Brake setup? Your rotors look a bit different, but maybe it is just the picture.

So I own a 2013 AH3 with original brakes. I don't like the brakes. And I have to replace them in the next 2 weeks so the best moment for upgrading.
I found the M sport/Performance Brembo disks on ebay.
Will they fit my car? Can i leave the rear brakes stock for now?
How is Brembo quality compared to OEM performance disks?

Hey guys, I will be installing the blue M Sport brakes some time this week. Just wanted to confirm a few things.

1) do I need to change the brake lines?

2) do I need to replace brake fluid?

3) do I need to do any coding?

I believe the answer to all 3 is no but just want to confirm.

1) No, can reuse existing, but will have to remove them to screw onto new calipers then reattach at the bulkhead/mount to the hard line.

2) Don't have to replace it all, but will need to bleed the new calipers.

3) You'll have to code the larger brakes.

I know I'm not installing the BBK but since it's still 4 and 2 pistons it should be the same right?

The menus may have changed a bit in the later ESYS versions, but the process (add SPBR to the vehicle config, and then recode the DSC module) is the same.
