You guys should take that glowing rotor photo down - that's clearly a doctored photo of Stoptech's Trackday M3 build:

Does the Superkit BBK come with the 6-piston monobloc caliper shown by itself in the 1st pic or the caliper that's photoshopped onto the e92 M3?

Thanks! If the caliper not mounted on the car is not part of the e9x M3 BBK then those pics should be removed because all they do is add confusion.

I'm definitely interested. I was looking for a lower-cost, lighter-weight alternative (besides StopTech) to the other BBKs out there. What's the rotor size on the Advantage Extreme kit? Any idea if it'll fit Apex ARC-8 18x10 wheels?

I have the Alcon Mono4 kit on my A4 and it's been great. Withstood 10 track days, and 3 New England winters and counting. I bought that one from Stasis. Vastly better brake feel than my M3's stock brakes.

I hope we can use the Advantage Extreme kit on the E9x. 384mm rotors are overkill. I think the 365mm rotor + good pads (I'll probably use Carbotech) and brake ducts should offer plenty of stopping power and rotor/pad life.

Those 6-piston calipers sure are sexy,though.

I am checking with Alcon to see if they do offer a 365mm kit for the E9X m3..

Cool. Look like 4 piston? Is it front? Can you please clarify exactly what kit that is? A link would be handy, too.

I definitely need to upgrade my brakes. I tried installing track pads in the OEM calipers. I have no interest in ever doing that again. Even when you know what you're doing, it takes at least 2x as long as a pad swap with the Alcon Mono4 calipers on my A4. Also, positioning the caliper pins on the OEM calipers is annoying as hell.

Ah, I found this:
Alcon Advantage Extreme Brake Kit Front Mono4 BMW E90/92 3-Series incl M3 08-11
Any weight specs you can provide would be appreciated.

Also, on my A4, I got Alcon rotors for the rear. They're solid (no veins) one-piece rotors, but they have the "C" indentations in the surface. Do you know if anything like that is available for the E92 M3?

This is the Front 6 piston Caliper.

The kit posted above is the Alcon Superkit Big Brake Kit 6 Piston Front & 4 Piston Rear. We can get get the 4 piston front if that is what your looking for.

What is pictured is the 4 piston caliper..
