You need to also specify a lot of things in order for us to help you out. Cost, desired size, wheels you're running, etc.

Go to Brembo's website, or search the vendor forum here. There are kits specifically made for the M3. Why do you need brembo brakes though? Are you going to be driving on a track a lot? Because if you're not, the stock brakes are good enough. Maybe a pad and brake fluid change is all you need. No point wasting money on something if you don't need it.

Brembos are one of the best brakes out there, it doesn't hurt for them to be aesthetically pleasing aswell

seems most are asthetically pleasing because of their funtion. appear solid and stout so look good to us as well.

yep it happens all the time. i buy a product thinking its ugly but usefull and soon i think it looks awesome and dont know how i was such an idiot before. it needs to increase linear or lateral power, save weight, increase strength then look good.

Pretty funny video, not because they are fake, but because the fronts are installed upside down (notice the bleeder valve facing down instead of up). Then on the rear it's flipped the wrong way, notice the bolts are on the inner instead of the outer.

They do look good! I'd say go for the covers
I was feelin the same way about the Super Charger Manifold. I like the look but didn't want to pay for all the unnecessary bolts and hoses so I bought a "clip on" ESS manifold cover that makes my car look like it's fast
Why buy the real thing when all you want is the "look"

If you spend the money for Brembo, 18in wheel standard M3, then use the 356mm slotted rotors, to fit and save money. If you have the M3 competition package then you can fit the BBK 380mm slotted. Monster brakes for hard Time Attack racing. Drilled rotors are for the cool look, but are useless on the track.
I burned up my stock pads and rotors, boiled the fluid in one 15 minute race. Cost almost $3k to fix. I found from other racers.
If you really want to save money. Install Castrol SRF brake fluid and a set of HT10, HP Plus or DTC 70 for super aggressive braking with your stock rotors and calipers. Cheap way at only $400.00 to upgrade your brakes. I have raced NASA TT3 with this upgrade all season, no complaints here. Still saving for the BBK kit or the AP Racing kit.
Good Luck.
