Question BMW Performance Brakes

I want to get a set of BMW Performance brakes for my new M3, I would really like Red Calipers. I would get Brembo brakes but I like these say BMW on them. Does anyone know where I can get these on the net or should I just go to the dealer. Also how much will they set me back??

Unfortunately the only BMW Performance accessories available for the US E9x M3 are the interior CF trim and steering wheel. Brake kit is only available for the 135 IIRC, def not the M3.

Those brakes are for the 1 series and 3 series, no M cars. The M3 brakes likely have more thermal capacity than the Performance brakes.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."

Yep only for the 1 & 3 series Nothing for M3 cars YET.

The Brembos are not that much more and they look way better too. Go for those!
