Turner Motorsport Brake Bleeder Bottle with Check Valve - Simple Bleed

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, and coated to protect the braided stainless steel from abrasion or road-related damage and offer tremendous quality at a phenomenal price.

Stoptech� 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� brake lines consist of a PTFE (commonly referred to as Teflon�) 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.

As Used on Project E36 M3
StopTech Street Performance front brake pads are designed for high-performance street drivers who want a high-quality and capable pad that won't break the wallet. These pads feature an innovative composite compound that is quiet, great bite and modulation, low fade under hard street-type use (and autocross, light track). We've tried these pads and love how capable they were when used hard but also how easy they were for regular stop-and-go driving. This might be the last brake pad you will ever need!

Position: both front calipers

ECS Performance Caliper Guide Bushing Set - Most Models

Part#: 003326ECS01

This caliper bushing kit will eliminate flex caused by weak rubber caliper bushings. As the brake pedal is pressed the caliper grabs the rotor and twists on its mounting bushings. The rubber bushings allow the caliper to deflect and twist which affects pedal feel and results in uneven pad wear. These solid brass bushings will not twist or deflect so your calipers can squeeze the pads evenly on both sides of the rotor (sort of like what multi-piston big brakes do). This will give you much longer pad life and a more consistent pedal feel. This is the most complete kit we have ever sold with stainless steel caliper slide bolts, o-rings, and new dust boots. Unlike other kits, these bushings are pressed into the caliper and will not shift or slide on their own.

Installation is straightforward: remove the old rubber bushings and press in the new brass bushings (we recommend special tool 003326ECS03). High temp caliper grease or anti-seize is required. The new bushings include an inner o-ring that helps trap grease on the slide bolt, reducing friction and wear.

For most models with floating calipers. Fits the rear of E90/2 and E60, but for the front you'll need the kit found here. Does not fit E30 models with Girling calipers, but is compatible with Ate calipers. 

StopTech Caliper Piston Rebuild Kits

Stoptech Big Brake calipers are designed to be serviced and rebuilt just like any factory caliper. The pistons will probably last the life of the car but the seals can become brittle from extreme heat or extreme cold. Sometimes they just get damaged from debris. For racing environments it's best to rebuild the calipers often (maybe even several times a year). At least you should always have spare caliper seals on hand.

These are the genuine Stoptech caliper seals (dust boots and pressure seals). We sell these to service a PAIR of pistons (1 boot and 1 seal per piston). You will need to measure your existing pistons or seals to order the correct rebuild kits. Sorry, there are too many variables to tell you which pistons you have with only your car info. It's easy to measure and you don't have to remove the pistons from the calipers. Stoptech pistons are metric sized and in 2mm increments. Use the chart below to match your measurments to a rebuild kit.
 

There are a few ways to determine which caliper seals you need. You can measure from the overall outside diameter of the dust boot (A); the inside diameter of the piston (B); or the outside diameter of the piston body (not the tip protruding from the seal!) (C). If measuring the piston body the whole piston has to come out of the caliper housing. Just measuring the tip will give a false measurement. Remember to measure each of your pistons as piston sizes can vary even within the same caliper. Click the image at left for a larger version.

 

Use the table below to determine which Stoptech rebuild kit you need:

We sell rebuild kits for a PAIR of pistons - 1 seal and 1 boot per piston. For example -
For a 4-piston caliper you only need to order 2 rebuild kits.
For a 6-piston caliper you only need to order 3 rebuild kits.
But make sure you measure each piston!

These rebuild kits fit with StopTech caliper pistons only. Sorry, returns are not accepted for opened piston seal kits.

A high-performance street pad with much-improved braking performance and without the levels of dust from a factory pad. The Street 5.0 pads are perfect for drivers who don’t want an ordinary replacement pad and want something that will hold up during aggressive street driving. The Street 5.0 pads are similar to the established Hawk HPS pads but with more initial bite. While the HPS pads fill the need of a direct replacement OEM-type pad, the Street 5.0 kicks braking performance into the next gear. With the Street 5.0 pads you can expect:

  • Better stopping power even when the pads are cold
  • Good initial bite (more than on Hawk HPS)
  • Excellent resistance to fade during street use
  • Moderate dust during normal street driving
  • Quiet operation
  • Easy on rotors

Fits the following BMWs:
E32, E34, E36 M3, E46 M3, E39 528i 525i, Z3 M
