    Hello guys. My front breaks locked up while I was driving, so front rotors/pads are dead, so I though I could upgrade them when I'm buying new ones. I have BMW e46 320i 1999 m52. Will 300mm rotors fit with stock brake calipers ? I think stock 320i have 286mm ones. Thanks for answering.

    Hi guys, so a bit of background info, I know what I’m doing with brakes I’ve got all the anti Rattle clips and shims, I’ve greased up my slider pins and everything is nice and tight no loose bolts. I started my front brake restore by getting some used calipers they were then sand blasted and...

    Hey, I have a brake problem, when driving on low speeds, brake pedal gets solid, and hardly brakes, on high speeds it is just fine? This happens when pressing the pedal hard, while pressing softly it brakes just fine. Anyone know where the problem lies? Brake booster or maybe vacuum pump?

    Good day all, I'm about to do a brake job on my '03 M3 Vert (stock brakes, not comp) and I figured it would be a good time to do a small brake upgrade. Originally, I was going to go with the 'CSL Upgrade Kit' but at $2k for what is essentially just a new comp rotor and a carrier for the STOCK...

    Today driving my 2000 323i the ABS locked up while coming to a slow stop. Road was completely smooth and dry, and I braked slow. No idea why it locked up but the traction control light started flashing like crazy and now DSC wont turn back on. I just changed my control arm bushings the other...

    I have a 2000 328i and plan on doing the usual front 330i caliper/rotor/pads swap but will I need to swap the rears? From what I’m getting I’ll need to swap trailing arms and other stuff to keep the parking brake? Anyways If I just get new pads and rotors in the rear will I be good or will the...

    So I'm looking at getting new brakes and for the longest time I've been running Akebono Euros but I'm really starting to miss that initial bite. The Akebonos still bite not anywhere near OEM and it takes more pedal travel for the bite to set in. This time, I was going to switch back to TEXTAR...

    Hello. I had to change my two front brake hoses. The change went fine, but the trouble started when i had to bleed the right side. Left side is ok. When trying to open valve, it broke clean off. The right side is now unbled. Is this something that is really dangerous to drive with, could...

    This past week I was upgrading my brake pads and after putting everything back together, I went out for a drive and a few miles in I started to hear this terrible rattling that turns out to be due to my caliper guide pins backing themselves out a few threads. I've replaced the pins themselves as...

    Hello, I've been making trips to the junkyard once in a while and I was thinking about snatching some 330 brakes for my 325i. I read somewhere that you NEED 17" wheels to make them work, is this true? My winter wheels are 15" because they are for snow tires. I would love to make this upgrade...
