    Afternoon All,

    I'm seriously thinking about getting the BMW Performance Brake set for my E90 320d SE.....

    Has anyone on here got them fitted?

    Are they worth it?

    Whats your opinion?

    All comments and thoughts gratefully recieved....

    Gareth

    I heard they are pretty good as well...bit expensive though. I think I read somewhere that they use Brembo to make the bits for them to brand BMW on

    Hi Neal,

    I spoke to Corten-Miller Performance Centre (nr Boston, Lincs) yesterday the quoted me almost 3k for a full Tarox set-up! (That didn't include rear calipers).

    So I think the BMW Performance set-up doesn't seem too bad, I'm going to phone Sopers Of Lincoln tommorrow for a quote, I'll let you know how I get on.

    Is their any others you recommend, primarily I want to change the calipers, as I think the standards look a bit naff, thats why I want to go for a full big brake set, as opposed to just pads & discs.

    You might want to look into Stop Tech and AP Racing as well

    Have a look at

    Brembo
    Ap Racing
    Wilwood
    Performance Friction


    These two have a good name as well and are a lot cheaper than the above!

    You could be looking at around £2k for the Stop Tech ones...no idea about AP racing though.

    Just a thought, see if Quarry have any 335's breaking, they have bigger calipers.
