E28 Big brake pics

I've made my own big brake set on my E28. With the S38B38 in it and E34 M5 barkes I didn't really needed bigger stopping power but I just like to do upgrades like this. The rotors are 350mm units (E34 M5 3.6 are 315mm). I also put a E32 750i master brake cilinder in it but this wasn't really necessary. Stopping power now is huge!!

They are 06 Viper calipers and E60 545i discs with custom made steel brackets. Later on I'm going to upgrade the rear with Porsche Boxter front calipers and E39 M5 rear discs.

I enjoy searching and building things like this! That's why I put a carbon airbox on to.

Liking your work.

Apparently the biggest disk that BMW make is 380mm & is fitted to a diesel!

Chap in the uk has them fitted to the front of his e30 turbo.

Would be nice to find out which diesel. Over to you

I believe it was the X6 that has 380mm discs.

My 350mm's are the biggest I could use with my 17" Hartge's. And I don't want other wheels. Only other wheel that I would fit are Alpina E31 wheels. Those wide rears are awesome!

This car has spacers on the rear to push the wheels out.

My car is running 18" buy 9" wide Style 5's with 265's. My rear arches have had a mild roll. There is room for 10" or 10.5" which leave a nice stretch on the tire.

Just found some pictures of your 28. Very nice.

I'm convinced that the b38 is shorter than the b36 on account that you can still use the standard radiator or e28 M5 rad.

I had to design my own radiator & have it made so that I could still use the b36 thermostat housing.
At least I have 5 cores know with a 22 liter water capacity

B36's and B38's are the same. My brother has a B36 turbo in his E28 and a friend of mine has a stock B36 in his E28. They fit right in with the stock radiator. Only issue is the lower hose.
