    Didn't they start fitting the re-enforcing plates to all E36 anyway after the first couple of years?

    Mmmm not sure bout that!

    the herford BMW guys say boutn £30 for the part so i prob might as well!

    As for the rear brake setup!
    anyone got any thots!?

    the plan is at some point to add the evo hubs and kingpins and wishbones... the idea being that i can use the brakes from an E46 csl (apparently this is possible on the front) but what should i do for the rear would the Csl's fit ok?
    I would be up for small amounts of modifications but this needs to be cost effective and to be done over time!! hence getting the rear end sorted first and then moving to the front!

    Any Ideas welcome

    cheers

    I know this might be a long shot but what would you reckon about these on the e36!
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-BM...#ht_1046wt_700

    roughly doing the math...
    E9* M3 = 414 Bhp and 1700Kgs....
    E36 328i = 200Bhp 1380Kgs

    surely if could be done for the price of the kit, custom made brackets and master cylinder from evo perhaps!?!? it would make a pretty effect setup (performance and cost wise)

    could some one please tell me this is lunacy before i start spending money i dont have on things i cant kit!!!!!!

    lol I seen them on ebay too! :P

    OK questions for you mate -

    1, why do you think you need big brakes?
    2, how do you use the car?
    3, how do you find the brakes at the moment?
    4, how old are the brakes at the moment?
    5, what make are they?!
    6, when was the brake fluid last changed?

    Answer me those and I will recommend what I can that will be best suited to you and how you drive

    here goes!

    1, why do you think you need big brakes? [COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]i belive that decent brakes would be better than more power [/COLOR]
    2, how do you use the car? [COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]daily driver... [/COLOR]
    3, how do you find the brakes at the moment? [COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]Sh1t proper like!![/COLOR]
    4, how old are the brakes at the moment? [COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]not too sure judging by the lip round the discs pretty oldish![/COLOR]
    5, what make are they?! [COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]Standard 328i! calps uprated(pah haw haw!) groved and drilled discs up front [/COLOR]
    6, when was the brake fluid last changed?[COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"] some time between may 1995 and aug 2011 [/COLOR]

    one thing i have to get straight is that i'm working on this car as a hobbie more than anything else. the brakes may be crap but their still proably better than my standard of driving, not forever hopefully but i'm all up for trying and failing as far as the mods are concernd but don't want to bancrupt myself... never mod'd a car before i have no friends that are into it this is prob the only time i'm ever going to do it so....

    I have absonutly no need for an evo axle but it was cheap!! my eyes are bigger than my wallet or brain but i need somthing to keep me busy. whether thinking about it asking about it or actually doing it i guess this is more of a distraction than anything else!!
