Looks like the Truner Motorsports brake package plus a bleeder. I buy from them regularly.

A similar kit from ECS would be about $653 including shipping, they do not have the SS brake lines in stock.
A similar kit from Zeckhausen with Centric rotors/pads without the power bleeder would be about $530 plus shipping.

It is I just didnt know if it was okay to say that because they post on this site and I didn't want to offend. Balling on a budget this summer, I need just front but I figured might as well get it all and get it over with. Planning on doing it myself first brake diy for me,nervous but going to give it a shot.

Buy the Bleeder and SS lines now while they are on sale.... watch for the others on sale as you save the rest of the money

Add this item to your list:

I was just going to go ahead and get everything now. Do you think brakes and rotors will have a good sale later in the spring/summer?

you paying Double amount men! save other $350 for something else needed to be done to your beamer. Daily driver does not require EXPENSIVE BRAKES.

i don't need to show you a link. go to the website your self and select your YEAR/MODEL and brake parts you need. "IT DOES NOT COME AS KITS"

YOU HAVE TO SELECT ALL PARTS. but you still end up with %50 difference and OEM brand compare to some other website.

Start here: http://www.bmaparts.com/bmw-auto-parts.php

Enter your year and model, then browse the appropriate parts. The website has a very easy and intuitive layout. It took me very little time to find everything I needed. Good luck!

You haven't done any research towards your brakes, have you?

I've heard different things about this. Some people say they are the OE manufacturer, others say otherwise. From all the real-world feedback and reviews I've read, people claim Textar to be very close to the factory pads in terms of braking power but they produce less dust.

Oh okay... After all... They less Dusty and Will Function just like OEM when installed NEW.

The point is, Don't pay $650 and you can get it for HALF PRICE!
