The FRONT StopTech Big Brake Kits for these BMW models include a pair of drilled or slotted StopTech 2-piece AeroRotors® and six-piston StopTech ST-60 calipers, as well as mounting brackets, stainless steel lines and StopTech Street Performance brake pads.

The REAR StopTech Big Brake Kits for these BMW models include a pair of drilled or slotted StopTech 2-piece AeroRotors® and four-piston StopTech ST-40 calipers, as well as mounting brackets, stainless steel lines and StopTech Street Performance brake pads.

StopTech big brake kits have been developed through years of racing success. These patented brake system upgrades include:

  • StopTech ST Calipers - stiffer, forged, differential-bore, opposed-piston calipers with a patented bolt-in bridge that eases pad changes while increasing caliper stiffness
  • StopTech 2-piece AeroRotors® - pre-assembled, directional iron rotor rings with patented AeroVane® fin design and aluminum AeroHats® for optimal cooling
  • StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads Kevlar®-like, para-aramid composite pads for aggressive street driving and occasional track day or autocross use
  • StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines - braided stainless steel shielded Teflon®-like lines for less system compliance and greater durability
  • Mounting Brackets & Hardware hard-anodized, billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel studs and all of the necessary hardware for easy installation

With stiffer components and patented heat management technology, all StopTech High Performance Brake Kits provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade for stronger, more reliable performance on and off the track.

 All kits, as well as the complete line of StopTech braking systems and components are available through authorized motorsports distributors and performance automotive aftermarket retailers today.
