Cheapest BBK for E9X M3?

What is the Cheapest Big Brake Kit available for the E9X M3?

Cheapest by price not quality.

Stoptech ST40 BBK front and rear...you get the added benefit of swapping front and rear pads for future cost savings.

Price and quality usually go hand in hand here with BBK's. Based on value/cost though, StopTech seems to be a sure bet.

You could probably just get away with a stoptech ST40 front kit. That would be the cheapest I think.

Turner had the StopTech 355mm (ST40) BBK for 25% off with a free Escort Passport Max radar detector last month. I sold the detector for about $400 so my out the door cost was about $2,000. Great price.

Should be more than enough unless you've got something ridiculous like an 800hp track-prepped M3. :-)

Best bang for the buck is probably getting a used set of StopTechs or Brembos.

If I can voice one opinion, try stock with better rotors, pads and fluids. If this is for the track ie. You will not be disappointed.

I have 3 other cars with factory monoblocs and I never felt stock M3 brakes to be inadequate (stock rotors are rubbish for the track, just upgrade those).

Cheers,

Lutfy

Lufty runs the pfc dd rotors for the front on his e92.

My e92 has the pfc bbk f+r, previously I used the pfc dd rotors on my e46m3 and they were fantastic
