    Hi guys

    Just placed a deposit on a new comp pack with dct, comfort pack & plus pack.

    However now thinking whether I should opt for another available car with the same spec plus M sport braking system.

    Does this option include larger front discs & calipers?

    Is there a noticeable difference in brake performance.

    Really appreciate your advice prior to totally commuting to the spec

    Thanks

    The brakes are the same calipers from the M3 / M4 Carbon ceramics but with steel discs and normal pads. It’s a great upgrade and 100% worth considering if the car is priced within budget. They are bigger and have more pistons too :)

    Thanks exactly my thoughts, will find out the price difference tomorrow.

    Haven’t driven an M2 CP yet so no idea of how well the std brakes work.

    I went for them on mine. I can’t compare them to the normal ones though. If nothing else they look epic! They are very powerful, took some getting used to after my single piston OEM brakes on my E92 M3!!

    £1350 option inc vat. Well worth it when spending that much on a car. They are a really good option and well worth the bit extra. I specced them and they are excellent. I say that coming from my last car which had mahoosive AP Racing BBK. However I haven't tried the M2 on track yet, thats when the brakes show how good they are!!

    I’ve had three M4s with the standard brakes and the M2 comp with the BBK. I’d go for the BBK every time. The best brakes I’ve had on a car were carbon ceramics on a Porsche 911 and these are a good second place.

    Had a M2C for a test weekend (well 8am Sat to 10am Sun) from dealership with Std brakes, this was after a couple of test drives of the original M2 and the both held up well for OEM issue - I went for the BBK option on mine and there is no comparison they are excellent

    Thanks that’s really useful.
    Did you notice any disadvantages with the extra unsprung weight of the BBK?. Does it marginally slow down the front end turn in etc due to the extra unsprung weight?

    Thanks

    Can’t say that it made any difference but tbh I do my looney driving on the track and find the frustrations of driving an M car to their potential on the roads a real pain and I have only covered 2.3k since Oct 19!
