118i brake upgrade

After the previous garage installed cheap discs and pads i have now decided i want to upgrade my brake system to a more performance based system, the current setup is vented discs on the front, standard caliper for the 118i and standard pads. What options do i have?

The M-Sport brakes are nice overkill brakes for the 118i. It adds plenty of unsprung weight, and you will struggle really hard to make them fade. If you want to go completely crazy, you could go for the Performance brakes. They are even bigger.

what's the point, you have a 118i. I would just use up whatever current brakes you have and focus on some sort of handling mods in the meantime.
