I can't think of a reason why this would not fit an M-Sport but fit the other model lines.

Thanks for your help in getting this new kit certified!

For those curious, that is my car in the picture and video. I needed to the spare for my winter wheels and tires. Bimmerzone worked with me to test the spare tire kit, and it fits! No rubbing, and clears the breaks without any problem.

Thanks again for your help. Highly recommend Bimmerzone for your BMW accessory and parts needs!

The M-Sports has a much better brake system, actually pretty much the same as the 335i, we tested it on the 335i and it will not clear the calipers, so we had to have a more expensive version for it.

That is incorrect and why I asked the question.

M-Sports only have upgraded Euro pads, no other brake hardware changes. So this spare kit will fit all 328's, and the one for the 335, will fit all 335's. In other parts of the world, M-Sports got unique hardware-we just got the better pads

Now, the M-Performance kit, that brake kit may cause fitment issues-def on the 328, likely the 335 spare kit would need to be supplemented.

Thanks for the information, I'll research it up a little more to make sure. always thought the whole brake system is bigger. I kinda see what you mean, the M Performance has the 6 piston caliper (kinda like a big brake kit setup) Thanks!
