I've been looking at upgrading my brakes from the standard discs and calipers to the BMW performance kit. Partly for the braking performance increase (although lets face it.. mostly for the visual looks). However I've found that because the 325i has a smaller handbrake shoe to the 330i and 335i (160mm compared to 185mm) the discs for the rear won't fit my hubs. The discs could be replaced by OEM discs but the pads would cover a smaller area.
There's no way I could fork out a huge sum of cash for a rear bbk simply to have nice looking rear brakes when its only the visual match to the front brakes i'm after
I've been having a think and the only options I could come up with were:
1. Get a supplier to make a one off set of discs (god knows what that would cost)
2. See if I can get a replacement rear hub from a 330i to fit and use the BMW performance kit.
Anyone know if option 2 is viable?
