Nice one! Those will be in need as iS original brakes are little weak in my opinion :)

Do they cost a fortune? I would be interested to upgrade mine also. Brakes are not the best place to save money as they are a safety feature. And as we all know "you get what you pay for"

Thanks dude,1 thing i wouldnt do is skimp on brakes even more so with putting such a larger engine in and tweeking it so to make it even faster :lol..they didnt cost the earth but never used these Brembo 1s so i will find out once they are on the car i'm trying them with ebc pads so i see how these pad's work with the discs and see if might need to upgrade the pad's :thumbsup:thumbsup

Are 328 and 318is breaks the same? Even the older ones IE mine 1993
No they are just a couple off mill diference but dont think the 318 caliper's will fit the 328 discs as was adviced just to buy brakes that suit my car reg but i will in time once all done do a larger brake conversion aswell :D

:thumbsup:thumbsup

I've heard that 318iS (92-95) has same chassis parts as 325i with only different engine inside?

I think same thing with 318iS from 95-98 but as 328i

But don't know if they match with 318iS earlier models and 328i as later model.

Mine is a 1998 but unsure if the 328 discs would fit in the 318is calipers as i was told by Kyle at Chizfab to buy with using the car's reg other than buy for the 328,so i would think they dont fit but i have also been told from friends they would but unsure so bought with using the car's reg

Mine is also from 1998 made in june and registered first time in december.

I checked it:
318 iS has: Brake disc, ventilated 286X22 Item number:34111165455 price:$85.55
328i has: Brake disc, ventilated 286X22 Item number:34111165455 price:$85.55

So same discs goes both...
It seems like pretty good deal for oem brakediscs as i bought aftermarket parts for just 10EUR less than OEM would have been.
It would be nice to see is there any difference between steel quality of these 2.

Links for realoem:
318iS june 1998
328i june 1998

Funny thing though:
Brake disc, ventilated, left 315X28 34112227737 price:$202.47
Brake disc, ventilated, right 315X28 34112227738 price:$202.47

M3 brakediscs cost allmost 3 times as much other 3-series. Same money could be spend for some high quality aftermarket parts for sure if replacing.
