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.

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.

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.
