135i brakes on the E89 z4

I don't think there is an argument that these certainly look better. I know the 135i kit uses 6 piston brembo manufactured fronts. (For those of you that don't know, the stock 135i front brakes are identical to the yellow BMW "performance brakes", which we already know fit).

Has anyone thought of putting a pair of 135i brakes on the E89?

Not trying to be an asshole but what's the point. Why would you want to do that are they better than the brakes on the 35i?

Maybe you're talking about the 1M brakes? Cause if that's the case yes. I want those brakes too...

Are we talking about the 1M or the regular 135i ???
If you are talking about the 135i, You mean the calipers are 6 pistons, but still on a regular disk/rotors (NOT Cross-drilled OR slotted rotors)
Why don't you just change the Calipers than?

135i does not fit perfectly on our car.
3 series BMW performance brakes fit on ours.
