All help is appreciated!
Argh...guess I was wrong...looks like a 5mm spacer:

Sorry to bump an old thread - OP did the parking brake still work after the rear swap?? I got a killer deal on a set of BMW performance calipers from a 135i (even with the cracking they'll be miles better than the stock 328i calipers...) I will for sure retrofit the fronts, but I'm curious if the rear e-brake will still work.

IMO the performance brakes look more aesthetically pleasing than the newer M-Sport brakes.

I did two track days on mine (with OEM pads, BTW) with stock 128i rear brakes (with Hawk pads). Absolutely no fluid boiling going on, the calipers were perfect, but the OEM pads let them down in terms of fade. I don't really have any issues with brake bias, either...

Similar results as above. I ran with the ecs tuning rotors and hawk 5.0 pads(they had a deal going on). I am running 135 rear brakes/hubs/axle swap with a 135 master cylinder.

No issues at Mid Ohio yesterday. Plenty of bite and no real fade in a 20 minute session. I do notice that they are softer going home after 6 sessions. that would just need a quick bleed.

I find that these are much better than 135 fronts. they are more consistent in feel and less perceived fade. I think with cooling/track spec pads/r compounds these would be a great setup.

my 2 cents

Ran last weekend at Summit Point, this time with EBC YellowStuff pads. More consistent than the OEM F30 pads, much better modulation, but they got soft towards the end of the first session, and never recovered. I'll bleed the brakes to be sure that the fluid isn't an issue (never has been with Motul RBF600) and inspect the pads to see if they're glazed. Do glazed rotors have a purplish tint to them? That could also be the issue (mine are totally purple, but get less purple with street driving)...

I did get one particularly strange thing from the brakes this time around, smoke. We had a red flag (E92 M3 rolled inside of T9) and as I slowed to a crawl and got over to the right of the track, smoke was clearly pluming from the front corners, and I could see major heat distortions at every corner; it all subsided after about 30 seconds. Yikes.

Yesss, and with good pads, they are well worth it for track junkies...

Hello, very interesting but you don't change the master cylinder?

thinking of doing the 4 pot front and 2 pot F30 328i caliper swap, but want the 17" style 44 rims to work. Have a local rebuild calipers shop looking at 330-340mm rotor front and 300mm-345mm rotor rears setup. I will be taking a rim to see if it will all clear. stay tune...
