Product Details

E36 M3 FRONT BRAKE CONVERSION KIT - Includes CALIPERS, ROTORS, and ALL hardware / parts! Complete upgrade for all E36 318i, 318is, 325i, 325is, 328i, 328is & 323is

Turner Motorsport has acquired OEM NEW E36 M3 brake parts at a substantial discount from a dealer that was going out of business. This discounted buy allows us to offer this GREAT UPGRADE PACKAGE at about half the retail cost. Building a sleeper 325/328 or an E36 track car? Converting the front brakes on your non-M E36 is very easy! Especially with all new, OEM parts!

  • Package Includes:
  • Genuine BMW M3 front spindles (left & right) (pn# 34 11 2 227 907 & 908)
  • OEM / ATE BMW M3 front calipers with clip and bushings
  • OEM / ATE BMW E36 M3 front caliper brackets with bolts
  • M3 brake backing plates (left and right)
  • M3 front rotors (standard, cross-drilled, or slotted)
  • Axxis Ultimate E36 M3 pads (other options available, see below)
  • Brake rotor retaining screws (2)
  • Pad wear sensor
  • Front wheel bearing (Hub) with the nuts and dust covers
  • Caliper bushings (optional upgraded brass bushing kit available)

Your car's braking performance will be dramatically improved due to the M3's substantially larger vented rotors and pads. The best thing about this upgrade is that parts are all off the shelf M3 and upgrades are readily available. Rotors areinexpensive when compared to replacement discs in specialized big brake kits.

Removal of the standard E36 wheel hub and spindle is easy since the rotor, wheel bearing, and caliper do not have to beseparated. The M3 parts will bolt on to your existing 318/325/328 front strut and tie rod assembly without modification. 17" or larger wheels are required to clear these M3 calipers. For the alignment, plan on the spindles to increase negative camber by at least 1 degree. The alignment will vary based on many different factors so an accurate prediction is nearly impossible. For a street-driven car you may want to also consider KMAC adjustable camber plates or the fixed 1996-99 M3 strut mounts which will reduce the negative camber by about 1 degree. For a track-car, the extra negative camber will be welcome for reducing understeer.

Choose from standard M3 rotors, TMS cross-drilled, TMS gas-slotted, or the BMW Motorsport Euro Floating rotors. We also offer a variety of brake pads for this application (Axxis Ultimate come standard with the kit, or choose another pad from the list below).

Looking for M3 rear brakes too? We have the calipers, brackets, rotors, etc grouped in a package (#325toM3brakes-REAR) to upgrade your rear brakes as well. The rear rotors are 1" larger than the stock non-M rotors. This gives you a much larger braking surface and allows for better cooling. The trade-off is losing your brake dust shield and the parking brake mechanism. The non-M parking brake runs out of adjustment because the M3 rotor is so much larger. This is usually not an issue for a track-only car but you will miss it on the street.
