So to summarize what you did:

- used the 335i rear hubs
- used a e9x 328ix/330ix 300x20mm rear rotor that fits over 135i hand brake shoes.

I am intrigued by your choice of rear rotor since 135i stock is 324X22mm. Do you see any braking behavior changes?
Next time you can use the F10 rear rotor, it is 320x20mm and requires a washer for the rear caliper to center correct

I am posting your message here for the benefit of others:
130i BBK rear rotrs are 324x22mm

I'm still shocked you are going to this effort- 130i owners in AU/EU swap to 135i brakes incl. hubs as it improves availability or rotors and is a more cost effective swap than the BBK!

We also code our VOs with the sport brake option.
