    F30 335i Msport - brake parts - FINALLY

    Ok Folks,


    Real OEM finally has the F30 335i brake parts that I've been patiently waiting for.


    Check this out:


    1. Vented, Slotted, Cross-drilled front rotors :

    Size: 370x30
    Part number: 34106797603


    2. Vented, Slotted, Cross-drilled rear rotors :

    Size: 345x24
    Part Number: 34206797600


    3. 4-piston front caliper:

    Part number:
    Left - 34116850931
    Right - 34116850932


    Front brake pads: 34116850850


    4. Single piston rear caliper:

    Left: 34216850973
    Right: 34216850974




    So, it looks like BMW indeed has finally understood the need of proper brakes for the 335i. The ultimate question is whether these are swapable with the E90!
    From all the things I've lost,
    I miss my mind the most!

    Pricing is currently unknown on realoem.com. Tischer does not even have those in their parts catalog yet. My bet is that we won't be able to purchase these till late summer, and even then they'll be rather expensive to start with, but still cheaper than going with an aftermarket BBK.

    I would actually disagree. I think this will end up being so close to the price of a good BBK, you might as well get the BBK.

    Ummm, a Brembo BBK is over $4k for front and rear. I don't see this BMW putting a price like that. I say about $2K max for everything.

    Stay positive man! Stay positive!

    Why do the 135 brakes not fit? I've seen them on Tischer, but it doesn't list the 335 as a fitment option. I think it says it fits 328. I know the rotors are actually a bit smaller than the 335i rotors, but the kit comes with the correct rotors.

    lol @ Brembo. Alright perhaps this would be cheaper, but I doubt you will gain much performance on the street and on the track, you'd be better off with the BBK.

    Actually closer to $6k for a full set of front and rear Brembos. Ask me how I know Click here to enlarge

    This new OEM brake system looks like a huge upgrade compared to the E9x 335i brakes though. Especially in the front (finally a fixed-piston system). But a proper BBK will still have the advantage of a two-piece rotor design.

    Take a closer look! The front rotors are indeed 2-piece rotors, similar to the Z4 35is ones, but bigger, slotted and cross drilled!

    The 135 FRONT rotors fit on the 335i however they are smaller in diameter. So you loose in thermal capacity, but you gain in stopping power because of the calipers. The 135i rear rotors do not fit the 335i rear spindles, The rotor hat is shaped differently. The rears only fit on the 328.

    This is a proper upgrade for us if the brakes are swapable!

    It's one thing to buy brand new from tischer, it's a whole 'nother story to buy off of a totaled 335i going to junkyard. Click here to enlarge

    True, but considering that we are yet to see the 2012 models on the road, I think you'll be waiting for a while for one at your local junkyard...

    Also, I know it may sound weird, but I have this stigma against buying anything from a junk yard. I feel that the bad luck of the car in the junk yard will follow you if you get parts from it. Weird, but that's how I feel...

    How do you figure? From the diagram it looks like they are 1 piece rotors just like the non drilled/slotted parts.

    Click here to enlarge If you learned how to read, this is for the F30...I have an e9x - more than likely, I will not be spending $6k on a brake upgrade unless it is a BBK - plus, why would I track a car with poor rigidity? =/
