Best result is fitting the full Monty as many have done. The entire, stronger M3 cradle, diff, axles and hubs. The whole shebang is pretty much plug n play if you grab the front yoke with the diff. I tossed the M3 brakes for a big brake kit. Why would you want to keep the 135 axles over M3/1M if available? No master cylinder change required.

I'm with you. But none of the m3 diffs come close to the 2.56 ratio in the 135i dct. I have all the rear arms, rear m3 shock, my rear end feels real good and planted. Just looking ahead possibly to upgrade the brakes. A bbk is so expensive. Would be nice if I can understand if the m3 brakes will work in the rear if I use the hub carriers from an m3. Will the m3 rotor work with the 1 series e brake?

Once I understand the rear, I can just keep an eye out for a used set of parts and upgrade the brakes for low cost. Does that make sense?

All the info you need is at the start of this thread.

E brake is not an issue.

Plenty of after market diff centres available in a myriad of ratios.

You have to pay to play.

The year doesn't matter. What would matter however is the transmission. If you have a manual transmission you're going to want to get a DCT M3 LSD due their closer final drive ratios. A 6MT M3 LSD is ok if you have a 6AT 135i.

I have the 3.85 manual M3 ratio in my auto and its silly with high power levels. Come to think of it first gear is basically useless regardless, so I would opt for the DCT 3.15 even with an auto.

If you wanted to fit the M3 brakes though, master cylinder should be changed as it's different to the original 135 one - Then could go an M3 BBK

not that it would be a major issue, just doing it all right.

Have rear M3 BBK on rear due to hubs and 135 BBK on front, Flinchy. Still running the 135 master cyl.

yeah not saying it won't work or anything, of course it will. just swapping the master cyl especially if anyone was to do the M *front* brakes is the way to go to have it properly sized.

I have M3 brakes with 335i master cylinder and at high speeds the pedal feel is a tad doughy...

<100 km/h you dont notice it but at high speeds it definately doesnt feel reassuring. Ive had a M3 M/C in the garage now for 6 months I'll get around to installing it eventually when I get the car back and update this thread for my feedback once fitted.
