Brakes help!!

Hi all, I'm new to all of this! I have a 2010 35is, I am based in Sydney and am struggling to find anyone to help replace these unsightly brakes... I have seen a number of post about replacing the front brakes with brembo and BMW performance ones but not much about the back set. Is there some out there which fit without to much trouble! Any advance would be greatly appreciated...

Hi! When people do the fronts they also do the rears at the same time. so what you read is actually relating to the rears as well......
If you read my thread on salt corrosion you will get some idea how weak BMW brake callipers are with surface rust and discolouration.....

Unless Raven has some information that he would like to share with us all concerning the rear calipers. There are currently no aftermarket or BMW Performance rear calipers available for direct fitment to the E89 due to the electronic activated parking brake. A few people have removed & disassembled the calipers F&R and had them powder coated or painted. Still they are not the most aestheticaly pleasing pieces of hardware.

IIRC, because of the electronic e brake, there are no aftermarket rear set ups
