Brembo Brakes Straight Forward Swap?

Hi guys, I'm considering swapping for some Brembo Brakes (380mm Front and 345 Rear). Is it a pretty straight forward swap? I am getting the brakes used and am wondering if a decent shop would be able to do this job?


Thanks!

When I did my 335i with the stoptech trophy kit everything was a straight forward swap, only thing I needed to do was trim the rear brake rotor shield to fit the larger calipers. I'm assuming it'll be the same for the M.

One other thing you would want to look into is will your oem wheels clear the calipers. If it doesn't spacers will be your best friend or get new wheels too.

Yes it is pretty much straightforward. Wei718 hit it all on the head.
