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
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.

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.

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