Here's the Blue Pagids going on the front of my 'Big Brake' '95 //M5 tomorrow along with new front discs.............


Are these still available ? - anybody know ? - this is the 2nd set of 2 sets I bought in mid-2006.

These weren't cheap (in fact quite the opposite), but they do the job.

Pagid Blues for the 4pots were made by Pagid as a (pre-paid) special order of 50 sets for Werner, a friend and formerly very active member of the german board. Unfortunately the best people in life are the ones to go first, and Werner lost the ongoing fight against cancer on December 31st of 2007.

There are a few sets of blues left, and when stock runs out it may be possible to have another batch made depending on the number of takers.

You can PM member Konstantin if you want them. I'll be at the RingHQ this sunday so will ask how many are left and what the price is.

Not good to hear of a members passing

I've ordered a set of EBC Red Stuff pads instead as i'm unsure how long the wait will be, or if there are actually any left. If however there is sufficent interest in ordering a new batch i'm happy to put my name down for a set if they become available

Cheers

Mark

M5 Brake Talk

Allrighty,

So the time is coming fast for me to change my front pads and rotors. I am curious to know if there are any upgrades that can be done at this time short of a BBK.

I believe I have heard of 850CSI rotors being used because they are several milimeters bigger. Is that true? Do I need new calipers because of that??

I will probably be using Hawk HP+ Pads, and the rotors will definitely be slotted(maybe drilled).

Anyway, I am just looking for anything I don't know about this.

Thanks.

Don't know about the 850csi disc/rotor size, but you wouldn't want to drill/slot them post-production as you'll just introduce stress points that will cause cracks.

If you're going aftermarket then ensure the drilling/slotting is done during casting/forging as this'll mean there will be no additional stress around the holes/slots.

The easiest upgrade would be to go to the 3.8 big brakes (343mm floating set-up). However you'd need to look out for a 2nd hand set to rebuild or pay BMW about the same as you'd get a Brembo/AP kit for anyway.

I'm an AP fanboy, but over here, the kit I'd like is £2300 ($4500?) plus fitting.

To fit the 3.8 stuff, what do I need it? Is it just the rotors and pads?

Or do I need the calipers, hub, etc?
