Ok so I’m gettinh nowhere with finding these 135i callipers at a reasonable cost.

Will V8 M3 brakes fit? Found these, could be a quick (if heavy) win if they just bolt on?

Since my discs and pads need changing anyway it’d v a shame not to upgrade - I’m back on getting some 335 callipers which I know are heavy but I can get a good pair for £150 - these do just bolt straight on right?

I think M3 brakes have a different hole pitch and won't bolt up.

I'd much rather have 123d brakes than the super heavyweight 335i chunks, I do like low unsprung weight though.

Ok cheers Marco - 123d and 130 brakes are the same at the front right? These will probably be sufficient tbh

Cool and if I were to fit 335 brakes would I just need the callipers to bolt straight on or would other but be needed such as carriers etc? Cheers!!
