Will standard BMW performance brakes fit E93 M3

Hello Gurus....

I have Brembos GT Yellow on my E93 M3 and I love them! But they will most likely get in trouble with local regulations in my hood where putting practically anything without BMW stamp on my car will make it not road-worthy

Does anyone know if the BMW Performance brake kits for the non-M E93 will fit the E93 M3?

Many thanks!

paint over the Brembo logo and put the M logo on it...


as much as i would hate to do that, if your local area shuns mods, then that's prolly the way to go

Yellow Brakes are a dead give-away

I got caught, so to pass inspection I had to revert back to stock.

Just put it back on afterwards.

BTW a friend's STOCK C63 was towed, and the police claims that the brakes are modified. 3 days later he got the car back. So it's just more of a hassle if anything.

I have lived in Dubai UAE which was no less. I had my STi shipped there and it was after a month I got everything approved. They thought the big wing at the back was a mod and my car was rejected until Subaru UAE sent them a pic.

How about making sure they are good and muddy or dusty (or both) before the inspection?

Yep probably twice as much as brembos and have less stopping power at the track.

Op! just pain pt your Brembo GTS colors. I doubt they'd notice the rotors are different.
