F30 Parts Diagrams Up on RealOEM

F30 BMW parts diagrams

If you want to see all the little bits that make your F30 into a complete car RealOEM now has the parts diagrams live (links below). A few interesting tidbits I've picked up from digging through the parts and part numbers.

Brakes
328i front brakes are 12.3", rears are 11.8". The same sizes as the outgoing E90 328i, I was hoping for a bump in the stock sizes. M Sport brakes on the 328i are 13.4" front, 13.6" rear.

335i front brakes are 13.4", I couldn't find a number for the rears. That is slightly smaller then the outgoing E90 335i front brakes. 335i M sport brakes are a massive 14.6" front and 13.6" rear. It is interesting to note that the M sport front brakes on the 328i are not the same sizes as the M sport for the 335i.

20" Wheels
BMW is offering a 20" wheel option for the F30! M double spoke 405 wheels are listed as 8.5" wide, 20 diameter with a 47 offset. Seeing the F30 in person with 18's at the Detroit Auto Show I think 19" would be the right sizes for this car, 20" seems to big but I'm sure it will be done aftermarket as well as with BMW's wheel catalog.

Complete Wheel sizes and offsets
The width, diameter and offset of every wheel available for the F30 is listed. Here are a few highlights -
  • 18" Double Spoke Style 397 (Sport Line wheels) - 18x8" ET34
  • 19" Double Spoke Style 401 - 19x8" ET36 225/40/R19 front / 19x8.5" ET47 255/35/R19 rear
  • 20" Cross Spoke Style 404 - 20x8" ET36 225/35/R20 front / 20x8.5" ET47 255/30/R20 rear
  • 20" M Double Spoke Style 405 - 20x8" ET36 225/35/R20 front / 20x8.5" ET47 255/30/R20 rear

Look for updates to the Complete F30 Wheel Thread soon.

Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps
There area few M Performance Parts already in the system including carbon fiber mirror caps. No word on pricing but I'm sure this will be a popular upgrade.

For more interesting specs on the F30 review our complete F30 vs. E90 vs. E46 thread. To see what the F30 3 series looks like jump over to RealOEM.com and click through the hundreds of parts diagrams. Post anything you find interesting!

The car has gotten bigger so I am not sure the 20s would necessarily look out of place....but I'm just not sure about putting them on a 3 series. They just seem SOO big.

Thanks for the links! It helped me get one question answered. Unlike most of the others who've seen and commented on it, I thought the red dash strip looked as garish in person as in the pictures, and don't think I could live with it. I was hoping you could get the black gloss trim and just replace the red strips with the chrome ones from the luxury line, but evidently the trim pieces and the trim finisher strips are all one part. So if I get a sport, it'll have to be aluminum trim with black strips.
