This is the new evolution of our popular Brake Bleeder Bottle. The latest design features a one-way check valve inside the bottle that is operated when you pump the brakes. This is a more economical and simpler system than other "1 man bleeding" kits - no modification to your brake system and you only have to buy the one bottle. The newest bottles also include upgraded caps and fittings for a tighter seal.

The one-way check valve is extremely simple to use - attach the bottle and hose, open your bleed screw, and pump your brakes from the pedal. The check valve opens with each pump to let fluid and air out of the system and then seals tight when the pedal is released. The bottle uses a large magnet to conveniently stick to your brake disc while you run the hose to the caliper.

Works on just about all brake systems so no need to have specialized adapters or bleed screws.

These braided stainless brake steel lines improve the performance and safety of your BMW's braking system. They are DOT approved, coated to protect the braided stainless steel from abrasion or road-related damage and offer tremendous quality at a phenomenal price.

Stoptech(r) Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines provide a quicker, firmer, more consistent pedal response by maintaining consistent brake pressure. Additionally, stainless steel lines provide precision brake modulation, especially during threshold braking. The improvement in pedal feel is more dramatic on older vehicles where the factory rubber line may have softened and swelled due to age.

StopTech(r) brake lines consist of a PTFE (commonly referred to as Teflon(r)) inner line that carries the brake fluid, which is then covered with a layer of stainless steel woven braid. The PTFE tube is very resistant to expansion under pressure and will not degrade from exposure to brake fluid.

The braided stainless steel provides support for the PTFE and the weave is extremely durable against incidental impact and abrasion. Next the stainless braided hose is coated with a clear abrasion resistant PVC cover for maximum protection against chaffing and strain relief devices reinforce end fittings.

These lines fit all 1982-1989 BMW E24 6 Series and M6. These may be used on all 633CSi, 635CSi, and M6 that are a model year 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, or 1989.

This package is used to maintain or change the brake balance on the E28 and E24 chassis when using the 315mm M5 front rotor upgrade. Without the larger rear rotors your car may have more front brake bias than desired. Too much front bias will lead to easier front lockup, more wear on the front brakes, and possibly brake fade. Front bias makes the front brakes do more of the work and the rear brakes are not working as much as they could be in slowing the car down. By switching to the larger rear brakes from the E34 540i you can generate more braking force at the rear and create better overall balance. There are several other factors at play too and if you are altering the brakes on your E28 or E24 some experimentation may be required to get the balance where you like it.

This rear brake package includes:
2 x 300x20mm E34 540i/M5 vented rear brake rotors
2 x rotor retaining screws
2 x E34 540i/M5 rebuilt rear brake calipers with brackets
4 x caliper mounting bolts

All of these parts are a direct bolt-on to the E28 rear hub. All of your existing brake lines, pad sensor, and parking brake components work with the E34 parts. You don't even have to modify the brake dust shield.

Notes:
This package is only intended to be used with the E34 M5 front brakes. Using these rear E34 brakes with any other combination of front brakes will result in unknown performance.
These are rebuilt calipers intended for the E34 5-series and a core charge applies. The core charge cannot be refunded if non-E34 calipers are returned. A core exchange only works when the parts are the same. Since E28/E24 calipers will be coming back, they cannot be re-used as E34 cores. Depending on supply, some type of refund may still be available. Even if no core refund is available the cost for rebuilt calipers is still much less than the $400+ for a new BMW caliper with a bracket.

This package consists of front rotors and calipers to upgrade the front brakes of any E28 5-series, including the M5. This kit uses the front calipers, caliper brackets, and 302mm rotors from the E32 7-series and E34 540i. This makes the rotors about 3/4" larger than the stock 528e/535i rotors as well as thicker. The larger rotors will contribute to shorter stopping distances and the extra mass is better at managing heat, especially under track and fast road conditions. But the best part about this upgrade is that it's a straight bolt-on replacement of your original brakes! 15" or larger wheels are the only requirement. There are no other parts required and no modification needs to be done. Your original brake lines and pad wear sensor fits with the new brakes. This has long been an underground secret upgrade among E28 enthusiasts but only recently have calipers and caliper brackets been available at very reasonable prices. You no longer have to pick them off a junk car! And now we can offer more options for pads and rotor styles.

On the M5, the E32/E34 brakes are more of a replacment alternative than a true upgrade. These are the perfect, low cost alternative to the 4-piston M5 caliper. The M5's multi-piston calipers are very hard to find as a fully-rebuilt unit. And new calipers from BMW are over $600 each! Your originals can be rebuilt with new seals but if the pistons or housing is corroded a full replacement is your only option. Changing to a single-piston E34 caliper may sound like a downgrade but they have the same surface area as the four-piston M5. In fact, the master cylinder in the M5 is the same as used on the 535i so the M5 isn't pushing any more fluid. So the brake balance on the M5 stays the same when used with the stock rear rotors. And this is why you don't need a different (750iL) master cylinder either with this kit. With our rebuilt calipers, the brackets are included to make this a direct bolt-on to the E28 steering knuckle.

The E34 caliper also has a lot more options for pads than any stock E28 caliper. The pad shape is the same as an E36 M3 so there are dozens of options for street, mixed use, and all-out track pads. We've made a few options available in the menu below or you can browse all of our E36 M3 pad options by clicking over to the pad section here.

34111160364R, E32/E34 540i right front caliper with bracket (rebuilt)
34111151604, caliper mounting bolts (x 4)

Notes:
- These are rebuilt calipers so a core charge will apply to each. The core charge is a mandatory selection in the menu below. This charge will be refunded in full when you send back your original calipers with brackets (in the boxes we provide). Or keep your 4-piston calipers for posterity (you would forfeit the core charge).
- Rebuilt calipers are not coated or painted and they will go through several stages of surface rust. If your calipers will be visible through your wheel, we strongly recommend painting or coating the calipers prior to installation.

This package uses the E34 M5's 315mm front rotors and calipers as an upgrade to any E28 5-series, including the M5 and the E24 635CSi and M6. The 315mm rotors are 31mm (1.22") bigger than a standard E28 rotor and still 15mm (.59") larger than a stock M5 rotor. The larger rotors will contribute to shorter stopping distances and the extra mass is better at managing heat, especially under track and fast road conditions. And E34 M5 rotors feature a vented hub for even better brake cooling. The E34 M5 brakes are a straight bolt-on to the stock E28 spindle. Your original brake lines and pad wear sensor fits with the new brakes. Some 16" wheels may fit over the M5 brakes but 17" wheels are better. The only other recommended item is the E32 brake master cylinder which will push more fluid through the system and avoid longer pedal travel. This has long been an underground secret upgrade among E28 enthusiasts but only recently have calipers and caliper brackets been available at very reasonable prices. You no longer have to pick them off a junk car!

The original E28 M5 caliper is a 4-piston design that is becoming harder to source as a fully rebuilt unit. A new caliper from BMW will sell for around $600! Caliper seals are still available to rebuild a useable original caliper. But if the pistons or caliper housing are scored or rusted beyond saving then a full replacement is your only option. And that's what makes this kit such a great upgrade and replacement alternative. It uses OEM parts that are a direct fit to the car and replacement parts are very easy to source down the road. This has long been a common upgrade for E28 owners so this makes a great overhaul kit for cars that have already had the conversion done.

The E34 caliper has a lot more options for pads than any stock E28 caliper. The pad shape is the same as an E36 M3 so there are dozens of options for street, mixed use, and all-out track pads. We've made a few options available in the menu below or you can browse all of our E36 M3 pad options by clicking over to the pad section here.

Kit Upgrade Contents:
34112226385, 315mm x 28mm E34 M5 rotors - choose from plain blank style, cross drilled, or slotted
34211161806, rotor retaining screws (x 2)
34112226873W, E34 M5 left front caliper with bracket
34112226874W, E34 M5 right front caliper with bracket
34111151604, caliper mounting bolts (x 4)

Notes:
- 16" or larger wheels are required to clear these brakes. Some 16" wheels will not clear depending on their barrel design. Spoke design on any wheel may require the use of a wheel spacer for clearance.
- These are rebuilt calipers so a core charge will apply to each. The core charge is a mandatory selection in the menu below. This charge will be refunded in full when you send back your original calipers with brackets (in the boxes we provide).
- Rebuilt calipers are not coated or painted and they will go through several stages of surface rust. If your calipers will be visible through your wheel, we strongly recommend painting or coating the calipers prior to installation.
- Larger rear rotors from the E34 are also recommended with this kit to avoid too much front brake bias. Using only the front E34 M5 brakes will shift bias towards the front which could lead to easier front wheel lockup during threshold braking. Using the larger E34 rear brakes will restore the brake balance to near stock levels.

The original and still our most popular high performance brake fluid. Ate Type 200 (and its cousin Super Blue) offer extremely high boiling points in a full liter container at an attractive price. Even though it's rated as a DOT4 fluid, the boiling points of Ate Type 200 exceeds DOT5 specs. Ate brake fluid makes an excellent street/track dual purpose brake fluid for almost all BMWs. Application note: BMW recommends low viscosity fluid for all new chassis introduced from the E60 chassis onwards, however, a high performance DOT4 fluid is still recommended for track use on these cars.

Ate Typ 200 is an amber/gold color to meet DOT regulations. It is identical in every way to Ate Super Blue, which was removed from shelves because the blue dye was not DOT compliant.

The Ate SL6 fluid is a low viscosity formula for modern ABS and DSC systems. BMW recommends low viscosity brake fluid for all chassis beginning with the E60 5-series. Low viscosity (LV) is a thinner fluid that works better than a normal fluid in the small channels and passageways in the ABS/DSC pump. Using the heavier fluid will result in a delayed response to ABS and DSC activation and a spongy feel in the brake pedal (only during ABS stops). Ate SL.6 falls just short of DOT5 specs so is classified as a DOT4. It can be mixed with other DOT4 or DOT5.1 fluid. For track use, a heavier high performance brake fluid such as Ate Typ 200 or Motul RBF600 or RBF660 is recommended because of their higher boiling point and because the thicker fluid will thin out at track temps. But for street use we recommend switching back to a LV fluid, especially in colder climates.
