    Just purchased a 2016 428i Convertible in Alpinweiss with Venetian Beige Dakota Leather. I first mod I'm planning on is improving the brakes. Any suggestions?

    Congrats on the new purchase and welcome to the forums! What are you looking for in brake improvements? Are you looking to track the vehicle or just some better street performance? Also does the vehicle have the sport brakes already?

    Congrats on the new ride! I'd say forget cross-drilled or slotted rotors for one thing, solid rotors are the vastly better choice for the majority of us. I'd expect stock brake fluid to be fine for most street driving, I suppose extended spirited canyon carving might have you experience some brake fade warranting a higher-perf. brake fluid. Racing brake pads are better for the track than street, so pad-wise, maybe some hybrid street-track pad.
