ALSO For those interested in the super challenge setup or the carbon super challenge it is not on this pdf I have attached. I will be doing a review of the Super Challenge kit once I install mine.

Rotora has been having quality control and customer service issues, I know VividRacing has stopped carrying them. I would be interested to see you findings.

Well hopefully things go much well for me. I have a colleague with the E46M setup and loves it. I also had a front kit on an old e36m I had for a while. No problems then either.

Rotora already has this. I found out when I bought my bbk from them. It's about $2800 for brackets lines and calipers

Malek was working with Brembo on this. IIRC, he told me that Brembo only had 4-pot calipers that were suitable for the front rotors. So yeah, not gonna happen.

Yeah, he mentioned that. I don't agree though that only 4-pot ones would work especially since Rotora makes a 6-pot for them now.

It's not that only a 4-pot will work. It's that a 4-pot is all that Brembo currently makes that's suitable for rotors that are the thickness of the OEM rotors.

Yeah, from what I recall, he was concerned about over-extending the pistons.

isnt a huge portion of the upgrade getting more vanes and better heat dissipation with the upgraded rotors. seems kind of silly to me.

Nothing beats a bigger heat sink, larger diameter and thicker rotor.

This setup may add some bling behind the wheel, but don't really address the core issues.

Bling is exactly what's needed. If one is looking for braking improvement then BbK is the only way.

Tischer sells a red caliper upgrade for anyone interested. It is the exact same caliper that comes on our cars however they are red. They are 303 for the rears x 2 and 383 for the fronts x2. Spoke to Jason at tischer and she said he will do a group buy of 5 of us for free shipping. I have not purchased yet so obviously no pics but its our existing oem caliper in red. If you are interested in a group buy with me send me a pm

Consumables are much cheaper using the oem rotors but you would still need to use the very expensive pads that fit the Brembo calipers. Another idea was maybe the stoptech 355/355 setup which would be great because the ST60/40 use cheaper pads. Any thoughts?

OEM
Front Rotor: 360x30
Rear Rotor: 350x24

Smaller Brembo Kit for e92
Front Rotor: 365x34mm
Rear Rotor: 345x28mm
Does brembo even sell the caliper itself separately ?

We are selling them and we are also sending them directly to US.







Here are some other pics from e92 335i with M3 discs mounted with our front and rear kit.









Front kit is available in two options

1. Basic kit
- front 8 pot Brembo and 4 pot Brembo rear calipers painted on color of customer choice
- front and rear brake adapters
- front and rear adapter and calipers screws
- you need to get brake pads for front and rear. We will supply the pads numbers that go in to them.
- you can optionally get steel brake lines for the brakes

2. Full kit
- front 8 pot Brembo and 4 pot Brembo rear calipers painted on color of customer choice
- front and rear brake adapters
- front and rear adapter and calipers screws
- front Hawk HPS 5.0 and rear Hawk HPS brake pads (with brake wear sensors included).
- front and rear HEL steel brake lines

For now we have promotional prices for the kits.

First basic kit price with shipping US (4-6 work days) is 1945 euro.

Second full kit price with shipping to US (4-6 work days) is 2596 euro.

Lead time is 10 work days. We have all the parts in stock and it is just a matter of painting the calipers for the customer chosen color.

The kit works with stock M3 18 inch wheels.

We are now making some new sets and they will be send to the customers in next two weeks.
