I am in the process up upgrading from a 3.2L to a 3.5L in the motor department, time to upgrade the brakes as well. I went with a complete AP Racing RadiCal kit - 6 piston front 370 mm, and 4 piston rear 360 mm rotor.

Install thread here: http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=478855

1. Rotora 4-piston Caliper Kit Front and Rear - for the E46 M3 (fits any E46 with proper wheels/offset). Includes carriers, bracket bolts, spare dust seals and stainless lines. 25,000 excellent miles. Bought in 2010 from [email protected] Innovations.

2. Performance Friction Direct Drive Rotors - True 2-piece floating rotors front and rear. Bought in November 2013 from Bimmerworld. 2,000 miles (not a typo).

3. 3 sets of performance pads: Ferodo DS2500 (high friction, high dust, bit of noise), Raybestos Rb4 (medium friction, medium dust, tiny bit of noise), Hawk HPS (low friction, no dust, no noise). I had a set of Hawk HT-10's I used on the track but they are pretty low on the meat so I tossed them.

Rotors are currently bedded to the Ferodo's inside the calipers.

These calipers combined with the PFC rotors are an excellent combo - street, HPDE, Auto-X. Predictable, consistent, no fade, and easy maintenance.

Rotoras get a bad name from their miniscule pad offering - but once you find out the cross reference pad shape - you can run any pad you like (Pagid, PFC, Ferodo, Hawk etc.).

Price:

1. Caliper kit - $850 for all 4.
2. PFC rotors - $750 an axle.
3. Combo deal -$2200.

Kit needs nothing but fluid for an install.

I will split shipping with the buyer.
