BBK anyone?

Hi guys, I'm in the early stages of researching a big brake kit for the M3, three brands I have seen frequently on these forums are Brembo, Stoptech and AP Racing, all of whom sell complete kits for the E9x M3.

Has anyone in Australia looked into BBKs or would anyone be interested in joining forces to purchase something in the months ahead?

The way I see it, a new set of front OEM pads and discs will be $2,500 anyway, so when it is time to replace, I would be happy to spend an extra $1,000 or so to have a better setup.

Sorry!

Okay, in Australia we are looking at $10k for Brembo, APs or StopTechs...As per usual in Australia there is no competition, one importer, and an uncompetitive price to match.

Overseas best I can find is Brembos for around $8.6k to your door.

I am still waiting for a quote from my dealer for a front and rear OEM pad/rotor replacement to see where we stand OEM vs aftermarket.....

Brembo's

I have installed a couple sets of Brembo's on M3's and they are amazing, I was actually surprised at the braking performance improvement, even on the street.
I am also a Brembo dealer and might be interested in a group buy quote if we could get a few together?
