Hi everyone, the F10 aftermarket is still growing but we havent seen much in the form of a big brake upgrade for the F10 535d's.
With our past experience with the E70 X5d's using 5.0i brakes as a factory big brake upgrade we applied this knowledge to the F10 535d. We were able to find that F01 750 front brake calipers, brackets and rotors are a direct bolt on for the F10 535d's. The difference between the brakes is quite dramatic. This upgrade will only work for the front.
Below are some photos and comparisons.

@[email protected] doing a bit more digging, the rear may also be upgradeable. Look at the euro F10 535d which already has the bigger calipers you mounted. Check out its rear caliper setup. I suspect rear trailing arm assemblies are all the same, F10-wise (should verify). But the euro F10 535d rear caliper housing p/n 34216793047 cross references to a few USA BMWs, F10 550i, F10 535i, all F06 gran coupes, F12, and F13.

Sorry for the late response. You can use any F01 750i/Li or B7 front brakes and it can be LCI or non LCI. I think it has to be 374mm. 740s did not get the larger brakes. We did have to modify the brake dust shields to hear the larger rotors.

We haven't tried the rear brakes yet, it is definitely worth looking into though :)

@[email protected] - any chance your customer is looking at the rears? I just ordered up the front calipers. Will do the swap when the Ohlins R&T go in.

This is actually one of our technicians BMW's. I cant remember why he didn't do the rears will have to try and catch him today if he gets to a stopping point.

Thanks for the tip. $54 for the pair shipped to my door with literally brand new pads, brake lines, and sensor. A bit of brake clean and a quick spray with high temperature silver paint

Hey guys i have the 16' 535D and I run stage 2 and need brake upgrade badly. I'm purchasing some off ebay that are painted and ready to go. Do you have to change the brake line? Also did anyone find out if 750lci rears work on this too?

Hello, I have the same car. I recently got the brakes overhauled and painted. Upgraded the fronts and rear with Tarox drilled and grooved, with their pads and stainless steel brake lines with fluid. Amazing difference
