M Sport brakes Option

As it relates to the bmw performance brake kit, the option appears when purchasing a new F30 for $600, the two kits are the same or different?

Basically the factory optioned brake upgrade is the same as the BMW big brake kit upgrade?

You still have the "better" discs that cost about $200 each.

If one already has the blue M Sport brakes on an MSport 335i can you simply add the drilled/slotted rotors as a direct replacement to the standard disks?

Yes, but it is costly, last quote I got was in the $800 region. I contacted AdamRotors and he could supply replacements for $500 incl shipping.

Awesome. I'm guessing plug and play one hour install with no reprogramming since calipers aren't being touched except for possibly a bleed?
