This assumes that you are looking for ultimate braking performance and not ease of installation and bling factor.

+1 on Performance Friction

Anyone interested contact the guys at Bimmerworld, they have done endless testing on these brakes.

There is a Performance Friction E9X M3 Brake Kit currently in development.

BLING!

Had them. Hated them. They serve no useful purpose on a street car other than to have braging rights to the most pistons.

Yah! Hoo! Sort-of. I won't be changing the brakes in my e90, but I'd love to have this kit.

Go to the Brake Kit page in the drop down menu.

Rotora has a 12 piston kit to win those bragging rights now.
