: I just finished upgrading my brakes . My 535 now uses 750 front caliper/rotors and 740/540calipers with 540 vented rotors. This setup is cost effective and is as good as it gets with BMW parts. I would suggest that any one feeling the need to STOP quicker/better for street/track check out this setup.
The definition of "as good as it gets with BMW original parts" is the brakes from the 1995, Euro E34, M5.
345x32mm aluminum hat, directional, floating front rotor w/4 piston calipers.
328x20mm rear rotor w/40mm caliper piston.
Definitely more expensive than the E32, 750 brakes but for maximum performance they are the awesome BMW brakes.
Other than the need to install a larger rear backing plate/dust shields they are a direct bolt on!!
