Our front caliper upgrade kit is a much needed addition to the E46 M3. The calipers included in this kit come from Aston Martin and are made by Brembo. The piston sizes are matched extremely well with only a 1.7% piston area decrease which means the pedal travel will be just like OE. We can offer these calipers in almost any colour and logo combo.
By using our brake kit we can offer you an upgrade path! If you feel the need for larger and better cooling brake discs, you don't have to buy a complete brake kit again! All you will need is our upgrade kit (part # UP0001) which will come with new brackets and 2 piece AP Racing/Vagbremtechnic 362x32mm discs.
The caliper carriers are made from lightweight aluminium. These have steel thread inserts for strength along with a black anodised finish. The supplied front brake lines have been made to our specifications by HEL Performance, which include stainless steel fittings and are finished in their carbon black sheathing. Lastly the fitting kit includes bolts that are high tensile M12x1.25 coupled with quality spring washers.
The OEM brake pad wear indicator system cannot be used with this brake kit, we recommend leaving the wear sensor plugged in so the warning light doesn't show and to secure the wires safely out of the way.
OEM 18" wheels require wheel spacers:
On the 325mm disc a minimum of 16mm per side
On the 345mm disc a minimum of 12mm per side & be cautious of wheel weights.
