I spec'd my 125i m-sport with the M brakes. I have driven just over 4000k's so far (no track work yet) and in the time have noticed that the up-spec brakes can make the car feel overbraked, if you know what I mean. I put this down to the brake package in the 125 being far more capable than my previous Ford and the difference in car weights - around 1375kg on the 125 vs around 1680kgs on the Ford. Now that I am more used to driving the car and have recalibrated my brain (and foot ;-) ) for the amount of pressure needed when my pace picks up. I agree with earlier comments that they are a worthwhile addition for a 125i. Even at $1000 list as an option, i think they are worth it. I'm looking forward to getting the car to a track day to give them a thorough work out too :-)
