Tiauguinho,
My friend works for a Stoptech importer and could get you a very nice deal on an ST60 kit if you are interested?

I'll keep you all updated.
Hi mark what main Dealer did you go to Prentice?

Hi mate,

Typical i have just decided to buy a new standard one. My old one has been playing up and ceased on the other night,
i was thinking about rebuilding it but decided to buy a new one got it from BMW cash deal at £250.00 arriving tomorrow.

The bmw parts guy couldn't believe how much they were and said couldn't see difference with standard calipers other
than logo.

I was looking through the old paper work and the other side was replaced a few years ago so thought may as well keep
the good upkeep of the car i mean it is now approaching 100k so probably best to get a new one.

If my discs and pads wern't as new as they were i would have seriously looked into this BMW performance set up looks great.

I am, a fellow, keen follower of this theory

Has anyone else fitted the BMW Performance kit ? This thread seems to have gone quiet.
Just checked at BMW main dealer & the Performance brake kit is now £945 inc Vat.

2006 E60 M5, V70 D5 Sport R-Design.

Hi All. Very sorry not been on in a while!

I got mine in Bavarian in Belfast, from memory it cost c/£700 including Delivery down to Drogheda.

Got the brackets from Friz and they are just brilliant for the money. Definitely an improvement over stock. Stoptech/AP are probably slightly better if your only tracking the car but if your tracking it with road use, definitely have to say I'd give this option a definite thumbs up.
