BMW E53 StopTech Big Brake Kits



Even the average BMW enthusiast can quickly exceed the stock brake's performance threshold. Factor in increased horsepower, better suspensions, stickier tires, and multiple high speed stops any stock braking system will show its shortcomings. Stock brakes were designed to be used in day-to-day traffic with light pedal pressure and stops from low speeds. They are absolutely unsuitable for regular hard use, either on the street or a racetrack.

Upgrading pads is only the first step - it works for most people who do not regularly push their cars to the absolute limit. But all cars capable of serious speeds should have serious brakes. The real key to better brakes is heat management and bigger is better. Brake rotors act as heat banks - a larger rotor simply has more capacity to store heat. StopTech has also designed their discs with better internal cooling vanes to dissipate the heat faster. Combined with aluminum calipers and rotor hats, this all combines to prevent heat from being trapped and soaking into the components. If not sufficiently released, heat soak will eventually reach into the brake fluid, causing more serious and immediate braking issues. Their engineeering and expertise is why you will find StopTech Brakes on our Turner Motorsport racecars and has led them to Tier 1 OEM status (a direct supplier to several vehicle manufacturers), four industry patents, and TUV and ISO/TS Quality Management System certification for brake systems and components. StopTech Brakes are among the best in the world for performance and racing braking systems. Made in the USA.
