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.

Made in the USA These front bumper ducts were developed for our own Grand-Am and SCCA T2 racing efforts. We wanted a duct that would make the most of the M3's frontal area and scoop plenty of air for ducting to the brakes. These ducts replace the factory brake ducts and foglights in the M3 front bumper (or ZHP or M-Technic II bumper). These ducts are made from 100% carbon fiber - we were able to mold them into the shape we wanted to maximize air accumulation and stay light weight and use a minimal amount of hose. Because these were originally designed for all-out racecars, the factory windshield washer bottle on the passenger side is deleted. The outlet for these ducts is 3" - perfect for most silicone hose kits. We also bundle these ducts with the hose and our carbon backing plates for a complete brake cooling package (link to package) .

This item fits the following BMWs:
2001-2006 E46 BMW M3

  • Easy to read 0-30 lbs pressure gauge built into the tank top
  • Pressure relief valve for safe release of pressure
  • 40" hose with detachable swivel fitting
  • Do not exceed 20 PSI

Note: When using for multiple fluids, you must flush tank, hose and pump between use.

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.

This is a set of stainless steel brake rotor retaining screws to replace the factory steel screws. As everyone knows, the stock screws will seize in the holes over time. And the shallow recess on the head means the screw is easily stripped. These replacement rotor screws are stainless steel and won't corrode and seize in place.

This is a set of 4 stainless screws. Most BMW rotors take one screw but some M cars after 2001 will take two screws per rotor.


Ate Type 200 Racing Brake Fluid (1 liter)

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.

Ate SL.6 DOT 5.1 Brake Fluid - 1 liter

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.

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(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.

$19.95

Motul RBF600 is a ultra high performance DOT4-rated brake fluid intended for track and race vehicles. Motul's advanced glycol and borate formula has resulted in very high boiling points - even though it's rated as a DOT4 fluid, its boiling points exceed DOT5 specs. With such a high boiling point brake fade and vapor lock due to overheating is all but eliminated. Even with a higher wet boiling point, this fluid will absorb moisture faster than most other DOT4 fluids so it will require more frequent changes than other types.
