Fitment of Performance or 135 Brake Kit (REAR) on 2012 E92 328i Coupe (E92)

Hi All,

After reading several threads and posts, it seems that no one has yet determined whether the REAR half of a 135 Brake Kit OR the REAR half of a BMW Performance Brake Kit will fit the rear axle of a (2012) E92 328i Coupe (note: NOT 335i)

For reference:
- BMW Performance brakes (BMW part #34110444769, see http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/34110444769/ES205608/),
- BMW 135 brake kit (almost identical but with black calipers and plain instead of drilled rotors, see http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-18...e91e92e93.aspx)

I'm trying to fit these with 19" 313-style rims.

The E92 OEM rear rotors are (I believe) 300x20mm, whereas the rear rotors in both of the above kits are 324x22mm. This MIGHT mean that the brake hat is too large, and I also heard that the E92 e-brake on the rear axle MIGHT be an issue.

I was also told, however, that the brake offset is different from OEM, so that the 22mm/20mm difference would not matter, and that there should also not be any e-brake issues with North American E92 models, as they allegedly have different brakes than the Euro models.

Has anyone here actually successfully performed this change on a 328i E92, or does anyone have a DEFINITE answer to this?

Would greatly appreciate any help or answers.

Thanks!

Assuming that what realoem shows for my E92 (160mm supporting ring brake shoe) is correct, so far it looks like the following would be needed for an upgrade from E92 stock brakes, particularly considering the REAR axle as well:

- BMW Performance brake kit or 135i brake kit, for front and rear axle
- 185mm rear parking brake shoes
- Most likely rear axle hub carriers (to fit the new shoes), probably with bushings and bearings

Are hub carriers what BMW calls wheel carrier (parts 33326774807 and 33326774808, $470 each)? Or is this something different?
