Opinions on stock 128i brakes?

I'm planning to order a 128i Coupe soon. Looking at the specs, I noted that the stock brakes are relatively small. I know rotor diameter is by no means the only measure of brake performance, but I'm interested to hear from other 128i owners about their impressions of the stock brakes. Do they feel sufficient for the occasional performance drive? Do they fade easily or lose effectiveness in hot weather? I'm not planning to track the car, but I've become used to strong stock brakes in every BMW I've ever driven.

What say you, 128i drivers?
