M Performance brake option question

We have an 118D M Sport coming soon, I'd like to add some extra M performance parts like the carbon mirrors, black grills, exhaust tips and brakes.

Now about the brakes: will these fit the standard 18" M sport wheels or will 19" be needed to fit these?

What are the best fitments to be had in 19" 8,5 et 35 front and rear?

Advise would be welcome

The M Performance brakes need an 18" wheel size minimum.

The brakes are ~1500,+ fitting and vat

But they will fit the 18"

I took the m sport brakes on my 125i and I can tell you braking performance is very good, the pedal feel as well. Go for it

The stopping power and pedal feel of the regular brakes are also very good. I guess the advantage of the performance brakes is that they are less likely to fade when you do a series of hard stops. There is a lot more unsprung weight with the big brakes, though. For people who are planning to do track days, the performance brakes are probably a good idea, but for normal driving, the regular brakes will perhaps be better.

I wouldn't choose this as a performance add-on, but rather as a cosmetic one. I found the blue M sport brakes as build option looking way too weird with a Valencia Orange exterior. The gold brakes complement better with this color, just look at the M6 in Sakhir Orange with ceramic brakes. Hot as ..
