BMW E28 Brake Overhaul Packages

BMW E28 Brake Overhaul Packages We sell complete brake packages that include everything you would need in a typical brake overhaul. These are the typical wear items that need to be replaced - front and rear brake pads, rotors, brake wear sensors, brake fluid, and the rotor retaining screws. This is one of our best-selling products - unbeatable value in a convenient and discounted package! We also offer the factory BMW Performance, M Sport, and "CSL" brake upgrade kits using larger rotors and Brembo calipers. These are a great factory upgrade to stock brakes in performance and looks. We also recommend installing stainless steel brake lines for improved stopping performance during aggressive driving.

With our packages you don't need to bring your car to the dealer for expensive brake replacements. Our kit uses high quality components that meet or exceed the factory parts. We use OEM suppliers and performance alternatives to offer the same parts that the dealer does but at a substantial discount. And we've improved on the factory parts in many areas, such as braking performance, reducing dust residue, and braking feel.

Included in most of our brake packages:
Pads: our equal or surpass the factory pads in performance, dust output, feel, and longevity
Rotors: choose from OEM replacement rotors or Turner or StopTech performance upgrade rotors
Rotor Hardware: small screws that hold the rotor in place when the wheel is off the car
Pad Wear Sensors: these sensors warn you when pads are due for replacement. If your brake light is on in the dash, these sensors need to be replaced.
Brake Fluid: choose from DOT4 performance brake fluid that surpasses OE standards - Ate DOT4, low-viscosity, or Motul high-performance fluid.

E32/E34 302mm Front Brake Upgrade for E28 528e/535i/M5 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.

Brake Rotor Size Comparison:
E28 528e284x22
E28 535i/is282x25
E28 M5300x30
E32/E34 540i302x28


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.

Kit Upgrade Contents:
34111159896, 302mm x 28mm E32/E34 540i rotors - choose from plain blank style, cross drilled, slotted, or drilled + slotted
34211161806, rotor retaining screws (x 2)
34111160363R, E32/E34 540i left front caliper with bracket (rebuilt)
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 item fits the following BMWs:
1982-1988 E28 BMW 528e 533i 535i 535is M5

E34 540i Vented Rear Rotor and Caliper Upgrade for E28, E24 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 item fits the following BMWs:
1982-1988 E28 BMW 524td 528e 533i 535i 535is M5

E34 M5 315mm Front Brake Upgrade for E28 528e/535i/M5 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!

Brake Rotor Size Comparison:
E28 528e284x22
E28 535i/is282x25
E28 M5300x30
E32/E34 540i302x28
E34 540i Sport/M5315x28


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.

Complete Front & Rear Brake Package - E28 535i, E24 635CSi This brake package for the E28 535i comes with everything you need to perform a major brake overhaul -

Front and rear rotors with hardware - stock OEM type or StopTech cross-drilled
Front and rear brake pads - Axxis/PBR Metal Master dust-less pads, StopTech Street Performance, or Hawk HPS
Front and rear pad wear sensors
Brake fluid Ate Type 200 (OEM supplier).

Our brake package uses the same replacement parts from the same manufacturers as BMW dealers use to service your car. The big difference is that we're able to offer these parts for a substantial savings from the dealer markup price. As an independent company we're able to buy our parts from multiple OEM suppliers whereas BMW dealers must buy their parts from BMW. We're able to shop from different vendors which gets you a better price while still maintaining original quality. You don't have to pay high prices at the dealer to get the same quality and performance!

In some cases, we offer performance alternatives to the OEM items. For an enthusiastic BMW owner, the standard BMW part may be inadequate and we offer an upgraded part, based on our almost 20 years of BMW tuning experience. We seek out high quality suppliers and designs that we would want on our own vehicles. Many times performance parts will fix a design flaw with the original BMW part, improving your performance at the same time.
