Hey guys, So my brake master cylinder in my E30 has pretty well shat itself, and it seems like getting a new replacement E30 unit is nigh on impossible from most of my usual parts outlets. Does anyone know of anywhere you can source a decent one from or ideally where I can source a decent E32 750 unit from to help get a bit better pedal feel in the old girl?? If anyone can help locate a decent one of either it would be much appreciated!! Cheers Mike
I need new brakes, all of them. My front and rear rotors are worn, my brake lines are 150k kms old and my rear pads are shot... There have been a couple of brake discussions here recently that have had me fascinated and I need to decide where to go. Some of my price research so far indicates: OEM Rotors/Calipers/Pads/Lines - 4 corners (F315mm) NZ Dealer - $2800 ("floating" front rotors, 6 lines) NZ OEM Discount - $2000 (as above but may not have BMW branding) US OEM Discount - $1700 (as above, approx NZ$ inc shipping and duty) NZ non-floating - $1400 (one piece front rotors) BBK Rotors/Calipers/Pads/Lines - 4 corners (F325mm) UUC/Wilwood BBK - $3000 (6-pot (sl6) + 4-pot (sl4), one piece rotors, landed) UUC/Wilwood BBK - $2500 (4-pot + 4-pot, one piece rotors, landed) UUC/Wilwood BBK - $3500 (6-pot + 4-pot, two piece front rotors, landed) Essex - $5000+ landed Brembo - $4200+ landed AP Racing - $6000+ landed StopTech = $? Racing Brakes = $? Others = $? Now, I really have a street car that sees the occasional corporate track day and the less frequent club track day. I realise the stock brakes on the 3.2 e36 M3 are great but when you weigh up the above prices it seems silly not to consider a BBK. And to be honest I'd put a certain (unknown) value on the bling factor of a BBK. Does anybody have anything bad to say about the Wilwood SL6/SL4? If I went with this combo I'd probably elect to trade pistons for rotors (i.e 6 piston 1 piece instead of 4 piston 2 piece), given my limited track days I think a two piece (floating) rotor might be overkill with a BBK? The UUC package has the advantage of using any e46 M3 compatible rotor which is appealing.
