Looking at the M3 brakes, I just cant see how they are superior to the 135i ones. I would have assumed that the bigger pads and 6 pistons of the 135i calipers would disperse heat over a greater area than the comparatively tiny M3 pads.

Not sure if M3 calipers would require minimum of 19" rims as well.
M3 discs are wider & have a larger diameter.
Don't M3s come standard with 18s with 19s an option? I'm pretty sure most 18s fit.
