1 series f21 118D brake calliper upgrade


Recommended Posts


Phew week ago I became a bmw fan!

I bought a 2016 1 series 118D sport.


it has standard single pot front brake callipers. As a guy that can’t keep his car stock….

I want to upgrade to some 4 pot brembo callipers for the front, and wondering can it be done? What calliper model I need and any other parts?

cheers in advance

Hi Hubss

Welcome to the Forum

Not sure which Brembo calliper but you could take a look at www.realoem.com I know the BMW Msport 135M used 340mm discs up front and the Msport Callipers are 4 pot

Remember if you upgrade the calliper you will need more clearance with the wheel 18" would probably be smallest and the offset would need to clear the calliper'

I would look at realoem get the part numbers for the Msport stuff then use Google to see if you can get them at a good price. A friend of one of our sons has a 120d 2006 he managed to find a full set Front and Rear discs, callipers (in Blue) and pads for a sensible £800. The big plus was being Msport parts they all fitted without pain, he was already on 19" wheels.


Forgot to say when you look at realoem for the part numbers if you double click the partnumber it will call up a list of alternates and the models they are used on
