    They are BIG money from what I have seen and not a straight fit, you would probably be looking at the same price as a big brake upgrade kit I reckon, just as a idea, sit down then open here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/product-fi...on-kit#results

    It may be a silly question, but would fitting a big brake kit mean removing the ABS?

    No, the abs sensors arent on the disks, so it'll still work.
    What about AP? I had a vectra ST200 with AP 4 pots and that stopped remarkably well. The callipers are made and you just buy the mounting plates to suit....

    a friend has done the same conversion to his tech1 he,s fitted wilwood calipers, yellow stuff pads [ebc] brake servo from a mk2 golf and they work very well indeed.
    the m3 engine in his e30 is showing 300bhp on the dyno at the moment, after a bit of fettling.

    why not just go for a standard set of 36 M3 brakes? Unless your planning on regularly driving it hard on a track that is

    The e36 M3 brakes are more than what you will need. The only issue you may have is fading on long track sessions.

    I hear that the brembos off of the E31 840Ci will bolt right up to the M3 spindles and all you need are E46 floating rotors...
