BMW Brakes & Brake Parts

Brakes

Some of the most critical components of your BMW are those of the brake system. Whether you are performing maintenance on your daily driver or stocking up on performance brakes for race season, keeping your brakes in working order is paramount to enjoying your car. At Turner Motorsport, we have everything you need to replace or upgrade your brake pads, brake rotors, brake lines, and brake fluid. Choose from our excellent selection of brake components to keep your BMW stopping confidently.

ABS/DSC System Parts

On modern cars the ABS system is also tied in with other features and systems. ABS sensors are used for speedometer readings, traction control, stability control, and other components. So when a sensor fails it's not just affecting your braking but cascading through the rest of the car as well. Typically there will be an ABS light on in the dash cluster but the SES/CEL light may also come on which will require a trip to the dealer to have the fault analyzed.

There are other components of the ABS system that are common failure or known weak points - control modules, pressure sensors, and relays. We keep in stock many of the parts that are prone to common failures, allowing you to get safely back on the road in short order.

Brembo Big Brake Kits

Brembo Gran Turismo brakes are complete multi-piston caliper and larger disc upgrades that bolt on to your BMW for an instant performance improvement. BMW GT Big Brakes come with Brembo's renowned brake technology and quality. Brembo is well known for supplying brake systems to the world's top performance and super car manufacturers as well as GT, Prototype, and Formula race teams. That same expert brake developement is put into their aftermarket Big Brake Kits for your own street or track car. Brembo BBKs come complete with: larger 2-piece rotors, forged and monobloc calipers with car-specific piston sizes, sport brake pads, stainless brake lines, and brake hardware. Brembo kits are designed to work right out of the box with each car's original system to preserve brake bias. Discerning customers who insist on a rich heritage of superior engineering and quality choose Brembo GT kits.

Calipers

Brake calipers require periodic maintenance just like the rest of your braking system. The number one problem with brake calipers is caused by rust. The caliper and the internal piston are made from cast iron and is prone to rust just like any other ferrous material. Not replacing your brake fluid regularly will lead to water entering or forming in the system and that will rust the calipers and hard brake lines from the inside out. A rusted caliper will cause the piston to seize, creating a stuck caliper, dragging brakes, wheel vibrations, pulling to one side, excessive brake dust and heat, or even a total loss of brake function on that wheel.

We offer brake caliper rebuild kits but sometimes the condition of the inner piston is just not safe to re-use. Unfortunately you really don't know for sure until you have removed the caliper and taken it apart. As a convenience we offer freshly rebuilt calipers. Each caliper is cleaned and sand-blasted to remove surface rust and dirt/grime. The pistons are rebuilt with new seals and dust boots and re-installed into the caliper housing. The caliper you get is ready for a direct replacement on your car! There's no mess from brake fluid leaking everywhere and no fighting to get the piston seals to fit. Replacing the calipers with newly rebuilt units does not take any more signifcant time during a typical brake pad/rotor overhaul. Rebuilt calipers are sold on a core exchange basis so we need your original calipers returned to us.

Caliper Rebuild Kits

Brake caliper piston seals are there to maintain brake system pressure and prevent fluid from leaking out from inside the caliper. When a seal goes bad or becomes damaged the brakes lose pressure, leading to a soft brake pedal, sticking caliper, or even a total loss of your brakes. Brake calipers also need periodic rebuilds because the inner piston can seize from rust. With a piston stuck in the retracted position, the brakes are no longer functioning on that wheel. If the caliper is stuck in the extended position it's putting clamping force on your brakes - dragging the brakes, front wheel vibrations, pulling to one side, excessive brake dust and heat, and potentially even a brake pad fire. For cars that see significant track use, regular caliper rebuilds are essential because higher temps lead to rubber seal failures sooner.

Rebuilding your calipers should be part of a regular brake overhaul. The calipers must be removed from the car and disassembled. It's not a particularly difficult job to do but is messy and takes some expertise so that you don't ruin the piston or new seals. Rebuilding calipers is more cost effective than buying replacement calipers. However you service the calipers don't prolong their maintenance until it's too late!

Cooling Ducts & Backing Plates

Plan on tracking your car? Going to be using real track/race pads? You're going to need brake cooling ducts and hose. Brakes create lots of heat and temps can rise to damaging levels. Excessive heat will burn up caliper seals and dust boots, boil brake fluid, lead to rapid pad wear, inconsistent pedal feel, damage rubber boots on suspension ball joints, and other problems. Racing brake pads are designed to work in very specific temperature ranges so to prevent them from exceeding those temps race teams rely on brake cooling ducts, silicone hose, and bumper ducts.

We have designed and produced advanced brake backing plates that fit behind the wheel bearing hub. The backing plates have an inlet duct that directs air to the center of the hub/rotor. From there, cooling vanes in the rotor draw the air through the rotor to cool it. By keeping the rotor cool it won't transfer as much heat through the pads, caliper, and rest of the braking system. Our kits are designed to fit to the hub without having to remove the hub/bearing.

Fluid

Servicing your brake system with the best possible fluids for your setup is just what your BMW needs to have the perfect pedal feel and performance. Perform brake services that involve bleeding brake fluid with our recommended bleeder tools to get the job done quickly and effectively for the shortest downtime. All the fluids and specific tools you need are listed on this page and ready to help keep your BMW brake system in perfect working order

Hydraulic Hand Brakes

On the track with your BMW, nothing delivers the line correction capabilities quite like a hydraulic handbrake. Our selection of styles and designs of IRP Universal Hydraulic Handbrake conversion kits are perfect for your BMW to hold perfect lines with snappy corrections for a confident corner entry and execution.

Master Cylinders

The brake master cylinder is responsible for distributing fluid from the reservoir to the front and rear brake systems. The fluid reservoir actually sits on top of the master cylinder with hard metal brake lines running out of it. There are a few places where the master cylinder can leak and cause a spongy or soft brake pedal. The inside has several pistons with o-rings and seals that can fail and allow brake fluid to escape. Likewise, the external metal lines also have o-rings where fluid can seep out or let air/moisture in.
