Brass Clutch Pivot Pin (Replaces BMW #21511223328)

This brass clutch pivot pin is an upgrade over the stock plastic pivot pin. The brass pin will last a lot longer than the plastic piece and may save you time and hassle later on. The original plastic pivot pin is known to fall out, snap, or just wear out over time. At the least you get a very annoying squeak every time you depress the clutch. In a worse case scenario, the clutch fork won't be able to push on the throw-out bearing and your clutch will be useless. The only time to replace the clutch pivot pin is when the transmission is removed, so this brass upgrade can be installed during clutch replacements or a rear main seal service.

Your floor jack is universal but it doesn't have to be with this adapter! Most newer BMW jack pads have an open recess inside that this adapter fits into. It's a rectangular peg for a rectangular hole. This gives the jack a much more rigid connection and almost impossible for the jack or pad to slip. You will never have to worry about scratching your rocker panels or jacking from the wrong spot - the positive connection ensures you are always lifting from the correct location. This adapter is one of those small hidden gems that you can't live without! 

Made of black anodized aluminum for added strength and corrosion resistance, the adapter fits the head of most hydraulic floor jacks, including the Schwaben Low Boy.

Compatible with most BMW jack pads for chassis E39 and up. Retrofitting jack pads is common, especially on E36/Z3 models.

These direct replacement center grills let you eliminate the stock chrome kidney / center grills, feature perfect fit and beautiful finish, and give you a darker more aggressive look to your E46 3 series 2 door coupe or convertible. Kit includes two blacked out grills with matte black finish.

Made from impact resistant long life ABS polymer, these grills are precision crafted for a perfect OEM fit. Unlike some competitors blacked-out grills which have a shiny finish that give off a cheap look and feel, these black grills feature a high quality matte finish reminiscent of genuine BMW parts.

This particular set of grills is for the all 2001-2006 E46 M3s, and all "pre-facelift" E46 3 series 2-door coupes and convertibles from 2000 to 2003.

This item fits the following BMWs:

ECS Performance Caliper Guide Bushing Set - Most Models

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.

Drastically improve the looks of your vehicle while improving your vehicle's handling characteristics and/or easily adjust your wheel fitment to allow for the proper clearance when installing parts such as new wheels, big brake kits, or lowering suspension components.Interference from components such as shocks, springs, or control arms are a common issue when installing wheel that are not a direct OE size replacement. By moving your wheels a few millimeters each, you can give yourself enough clearance for proper wheel fitment and give your car a wider stance in the process.

ECS Tuning wheel spacers are constructed of high quality 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum and are specifically designed by in-house engineers and cnc machined to exact standards, ensuring the best fitment possible. By carefully measuring the OEM wheel hubs and bore dimensions, these spacers mount with minimal clearance to prevent any vibration, retaining the stock-like vibration free operation. 

This kit includes wheel bolts that are lab tested to meet or exceed ISO 898 class 10.9 mechanical and physical properties to ensure perfect fastening of the wheel to the hub with no issues or potential to snap under aggressive driving conditions.

ECS Tuning is a performance and genuine parts provider that designs their ECS Tuning branded aftermarket automotive parts in-house to ensure the highest quality and affordability possible. Every part's design is subjected to a rigorous test fit and stress test period to guarantee proper fitment and continued reliability for years to come.

This multifunctional front mount is 3 products in one! This front mount can be set up as a -

  • No Holes license plate bracket
  • Camera mount
  • 2" tow hook
  • Or almost any combination of the above*

Now your license plate bracket can double as a mount for your Go-Pro or similar camera system. Or a tow hook with the camera for track use. Running one or multiple combinations is easy since each piece is mounted to the existing tow hook receptacle behind the bumper. No modification is required! Each piece threads into the tow hook for easy install and removal. Metric Allen keys are included. ECS engineers were unimpressed wtih other plate and holder materials on the market so all pieces in their kit are made from stainless steel or 4140 alloy steel with a tough resilient coating (aluminum and plain sheetmetal were found to deform after repeated use). Simulations show this plate mount to withstand speeds of up to 150mph!

This kit was developed for the front but may also fit on some rear tow hook locations. A different extension may be required.

* - the only combination not possible is the tow hook with the license plate bracket.

Unsure of what size spacer will work best for you? This professional kit includes 1mm, 2.5mm, 5mm, 10mm, and 15mm spacers with wheel studs and nuts for you play with. These are not the same spacers that we sell and they cannot be used to drive on. But with the studs installed the car can be lowered to the ground and rolled to check for clearances. These test fit spacers are drilled to fit the standard BMW 5x120 bolt pattern as well as 4-lug 4x100 (and VW/Audi bolt patterns too). You can stack spacers to achieve the perfect clearance. When you're ready call us to order the spacers you need (Turner spacers come in 3mm, 5mm, 7.5mm, 10mm, 12.5mm, 15mm, 17.5mm, 20mm, 25mm, and 30mm spacer thicknesses).

These spacers are not for driving on. They lack the hubcentric lip that BMW wheels are designed to work with. Driving on studs alone will lead to a failure.

Two ways to buy -

  • Own. Just as it says, you buy this kit to own. Perfect for shops or race teams that change wheels or brake components often. For shops you can measure wheel clearance and order the correct spacers the first time around (no wasting inventory or paying return shipping). Note: Kits purchased to Own are not returnable for refunds.
  • Rent. Pay the full price but get $110 as a store credit when you return the kit. We keep a modest $19.95 fee for the service. Perfect for DIY and enthusiasts who only need the Test Kit once. Use your store credit to purchase your spacers (or anything else from our catalog).

E46 M3, Z4M Performance Polyurethane Differential Bushing Set

Worn rubber differential mounts will lead to the differential twisting and shifting around in the rear subframe. Not only will this be noisy but it's bad for driver confidence and bad for the chassis as well. Even on fresh rubber bushings the differential has deflection and twist, especially if the car has been modified for more torque. Since the differential is centrally mounted in the rear subframe, with all suspension mounts interconnected, a differential with too much deflection will affect handling and could even damage the rear subframe.

These 88A urethane E46 M3 diff mounts are much stiffer than stock but still not as solid as our Turner aluminum/Delrin bushings. This set will resist twisting much better than the stock rubber mounts. Included is the front diff mount and two rear mounts in the cover.
