AP Racing BBK

Hi All,

Finally received my Ap racing BBK!

Impressive part!

Must be one of the first to have it, will mount it Next Sunday or the Sunday after.

It will break HARD! I can't wait testing it on the track on May at SPA francorchamps.

The kit is 376 mm.

I'll give you feed back as soon as possible+photos once it's mounted.

Just to share, as i did not find pics of this M3 V8 kit on the web.

Sure front kit, i'll use yellow pagid at the 4 corners ...it's about 3200€ TTC.

Incredibly efficient, my budy has it on his CSL, and it's simply incredible.

Thanks!

Could compare in the hand and there's a huge difference for discs and calipers!
Did not mesure it, but i can obtain the real figures...

Looks great! One question though - if only the front brakes are changed, doesn't this alter the brake bias? Is there a matching rear kit available?

Thank you!

I changed rear brake pads+stainless steel.

There are actually RS29 yellow pagid on 4 corners, which are comptetion brake pads.

A budy of mine has this set up on his CSL and it's simply incredible!!

Those look great, over here AP is far more popular then Brembo.

That's the 1st kit for the E92 I've seen, most of the CSL's over here with a BBK have gone for AP.

Congrats, will be interested to hear your feedback!
