M Sport Brakes - F22, F30, F32

Revised 11/15/2018



Stock factory brakes on the F22 2-series, F30 3-series, and F32 4-series continue to confuse owners and part suppliers alike. BMW offered several different brake specs on these cars, and sometimes with the exact same branding for different components. This page will break down the stock factory specs by model and hopefully eliminate confusion once and for all.

Most of the confusion is centered on the M Sport name. Depending on your model this was a trim package, a brake pad upgrade, larger front & rear rotors, or all of the above. BMW applied the M Sport label inconsistently to too many options. There was even differences among model years and sales markets (US vs. Europe vs. Canada). Up thru 2015 it was a standalone option when the car was ordered. From 2016-on it was bundled with the Track Handling Package. Through careful research and physical observations of the parts we can spell out the differences.

Important Notes:
1. Retrofits and brake swaps from another model are common.
2. Keep in mind that you may have a retrofit on the front but original spec on the rear.

Since these components all came from the BMW parts bin nearly everything can be swapped from one model to another. We'll be happy to look up your original options by using your VIN but we may also ask for photos or measurements just to be sure. For a gallery of M Sport brakes, click to the bottom of the page.

F22 228i/230i Model Info:


M Sport trim package. Option code P337/P337A (A for America). Grey calipers, 330mm front rotors.
A comprehensive package of M Sport front and rear bumpers, M steering wheel, sport seats, M sport suspension and other trim pieces. The front rotors are 10mm larger (330mm) and sportier pads were included on the front and rear. You ordered the P337 M Sport package along with other packages when buying the car - Premium, Cold Weather, Technology, etc.

335i Retrofit. Grey Brembo calipers, 340mm front rotors.
Stock, take-off 335i front brakes will bolt up to the 328i/428i. These were a 4-piston grey Brembo caliper and 340mm rotor. We don't recommend this unless matching rear brakes are installed and the ABS/DSC software is updated to 328i M Sport version.

M Sport upgrade option (2012-2015). Option code S2NH/S2NHA (A for America). Blue calipers, 340/345mm rotors.
By checking off this box under the Options form, you got larger rotors, blue Brembo calipers, and sportier pads. All of the parts are the same as what was standard on a M235i. This was a standalone option and separate from any other package but would have required 18" wheels.

M Sport upgrade with Track Handling Package (2016-2018). Option code ZTR. Blue calipers, 340/345mm rotors.
Beginning in 2016 the S2NH could only be ordered through the Track Handling Package and could not be ordered separately. The specs remained the same.

M Performance accessory retrofit. Through the Accessories catalog at the dealer you could order M Performance brakes. These are red, orange, or yellow calipers and larger rotors with a dimple/slot pattern. These could also be ordered from the aftermarket. For these models the M Performance brakes are larger than the M Sport brakes.
