135is Ceramic Brake Pads

The 135is has gorgeous wheels and big BMW logo calipers, but you can never see them because one day after washing they are a dull rust color.

I would love to install ceramic pads, but they do not appear to be available for the 135is.

I installed cool carbon pads hoping they'd be better but no difference.

Does anyone know of a source for ceramic pads for the 135is?

I have a 2013 135is coupe.

Yeah, thanks guys...I think I will just order a set and try them.

On other sites that have the 135is chassis option (ECS does not), it claims they don't fit.

I called ECS tuning yesterday and the tech walked me through their inventory. He claimed there were no ceramic pads for this car.

I haven't been able to determine whether the 135is has the same calipers and pads as the 135i. I guess now we'll see. I'll let you know how it turns out...

Do you have these on your car? I'm thinking there may not be much difference between a 135is and a 135 M Sport.

135i and 135is have the exact same brakes.

Well that is encouraging, thanks. Order has shipped. Anxious to make the swap.

If you want little to no dust, you can get Powerstop Z23 brake pads from Rock Auto. Tons of people have been saying good things about them. Hawk HPS and EBC Redstuff are a couple other good options. Iíll be doing Carbotech 1521 myself. A good street pad with less dust than OEM.
