Are there any Brembo BBK. That will fit under my 17" wheels?

Looks like I can go up to 332mm under a 17" wheel.

Do most people only do front or front/rear combo? I'd think front & back would make the most sense but they're bloody expensive! ($6k for brakes - my car's probably not worth that!)

The 320mm kit is almost half the price.... Guess that's the way to go.

I'm a slave to brands, and have always like Brembos, but on further research, are they worth the premium over the Stoptech or Wildwood kits?

To be honest, you can pick up stock e36 m3 brakes all around for $350, including master cylinder. Even if you rebuild, powder coat, etc, you will still come in under a grand.

Food for thought.

Definately food for thought.

I will eventually do an S50 swap with a moderate SC setup. For street use, the stock M3 brakes should be fine, right?

The blind of BBKs is nice, but probably doesn't make sense for an e36 that's not being tracked.

Honestly a Acura NSX has smaller rotors then a e36 m3. No joke. The m3 brakes are pretty serious for what they are.

Good to hear. I love the brakes on my B5 S4. So as long as it's similar stopping power, I'll be happy. But when I get into my E36 after driving the S4, the brakes scare me!

If you are not satisfied with stock M3 Brakes upgrade to brembo slotted rotors for E36 M3 Hawk HP+ pads, stainless lines + Dot 5 Fluid and custom brake ducts

Should have less fade and good stopping power
