I'm not gonna lie, I do prefer the blue color of the M brakes, but these still look awesome! Did you choose this particular color for a reason? I've always seen red being the default color for Brembo performance kits. They all look pretty dang nice though in this pic:

No warranty is voided.
I know most of the dealer in my area.

Nice.... Brembo already has a kit out for the F15?

Honestly....do you notice any braking improvements with these over the Mperformance brakes?

The blue is nice, but I can't stand the fact where the rear are only single piston slave design. Also, I see more and more F15 with MPBK already.
As far the color, Red is Brembo default, so it is everywhere. Black is ehhh. Silver also boring.
I have done my customer car E92 AW with Yellow also, and I loved it. That's why I go with yellow.
The other one that I like is their GT-R finish. But, the GT-R cost is wayyy to much.
So now, with the Brembo, I have a stand out color with 6 pot caliper front and 4 pot caliper rear.

Alan,

They have the kit even before the F15 is built. It is because the F15 is sharing the brakes with E70 X5M.
I can't really give you any feedback yet as on the braking performance, I still have yet to properly bed the brakes.
I will post the review once the bedding process is completed.

Ah, I see. True, everyone is getting the M brake kit these days. Nonetheless, looks great, and glad you're happy with it. If you're upgrading your wheel/tire size soon, it'll def help!

I am still debating with the wheels.
21" tire price are crazy expensive.
22" not much meat on the tires and not too many good tires.

A lot of the 21" and 22" I saw, the tire seems to be a little stretched. Especially in the rear.

If you get 22", don't get 285/35R22 tire size. It's too thick. I can only turn my wheel left to 97-98% before tire rubbing occurs. Other than that, they ride really well. Supposedly, the X-line is lowered according to my service guy so that could be why.

Are you coming to the meet tomorrow? If you are, let's talk tomorrow.
It is 405mm front and 380mm rear.

After a few months, I finally received the 1 month payment refund from BMW.
Now, since then, here are the mods that I have done with it.

- BMS JB4 Stage 1
- Upgraded to JB4 Stage 2 (04/11 Confirmed working)
- BMS N55 Air Intake
[IMG]http://<a href="http://i932.photobuc...816a5.jpeg</a>[/IMG]

- Some Codings

- Windows rollup via keyfob / comfort access
- Side mirror fold via keyfob / comfort access
- Reduce side mirror fold time
- Trunk close via keyfob / driver side button
- DVD in motion
- Video via USB
- Temperature on TPMS screen (default only shows pressure)
- M Performance splash screen
http://<a href="http://<div class="y...ame></div></a>
- Lane departure on HUD
- Signal on HUD
- Seat ventilation/heating temperature
- Rear tail light DRL

- Phone Cradle delete
- M Sport Big Brake Kit
- Upgraded to Brembo Big Brake Kit

Next mods would be:
- Coilover or Lowering Spring (Waiting for ACS first spring set in the US, ETA Mid April)
- Catless Downpipe
- 21" or 22" wheels

For your entertainment, here are the picture of the M Sport brake installed.

m performance brakes incl discs (rotors) separately or can one only buy blue brakes that fit on the existing discs? Thanks

They include rotors. The existing ones won't fit.
