I recommend checking out StopTech's line of Brake Upgrades for your vehicle. Seeing how you are needing replacement braking components for your vehicle, why not upgrade at the same time with better performing parts, at significantly reduced cost of OEM equivalents?

As always, http://www.m3post.com/forums/images/smilies/search.gif for more information and other members' suggestions.

Feel free to shoot me a PM / E-Mail or call if you had any questions. :D

StopTech SportStop Brake Rotors
StopTech SportStop brake rotors are made of an alloy developed from the material used in StopTech's patented AeroRotors used on StopTech Big Brake Kits. This material offers superior cracking resistance due to thermal stress as well as increased initial bite and improved wet weather response. These rotors are OEM diameter for a perfect replacement fit and offer OE or improved vane design where possible on all rotors. These rotors are offered in slotted and cross drilled varieties.

StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines
StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines provide a quicker pedal response, maintaining consistent brake pressure and precision brake modulation, especially during threshold braking. The stainless steel braid provides support for the Teflon and the weave is extremely durable against incidental impact and abrasion.

StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads
StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads are engineered to meet the demands of high performance driving while maintaining the refinement and comfort expected in everyday driving conditions. These pads combine the benefits of premium street brake pads with aggressive friction formulas suitable for track day and autocross use. These pads offer increased bite, less fade and less dust than OEM pads. A good replacement at an excellent price.

Look at K Sport. I have the 8 pot kit on my 325 with 355mm discs.

Sorry, I dont think you should compromise your safety in order to save money. Go with tested brands like Stoptech and Brembo. K-Sport might have a fitment for you, but my money is riding on them not performing at the same level as a Stoptech or Brembo kit. Sure they will stop you once or twice from a high rate of speed, but I sure as heck would not trust them on a race track.

I did alot of research before buying my BBK and did consider Brembo etc but came accross some very good reports for K-sport. Their BBK's actually have a good repuation here in the UK and Europe and have been sold and used on track for many years with no issues at all!

I know of a guy that has run Brembo, AP and Alcon on a CSL and found performance on road / track to be indiscernible.

Don't assume that the BBK is the same quality as their rubbish coilover that seems to be popular in the states - it's actually a sound product if you can get over the name :).

Anyway, this is just a heads up on a good deal, - don't take my word for it plenty of info on the net.

I would say lets agree to disagree on that one and leave it there.

I agree, but I did not want to start an internet war here over what constitutes good calipers vs "one size fits all" approach, and "throw more pistons in there to make it look like it is better".

Oh, this is priceless, Ksport has an 8 piston rear caliper for an Acura RSX-S, which has a 16" rotor and requires 20" rims. That should be proof enough that they do not do their homework on the cars they make parts for, but I am sure the look nice....

No hard feelings :thumbsup:. Just throwing it out there, I assume the smart people will not take our word and search outside the forum themselves anyway.
