Brakes are the most vital part of any high-performance build. While fancy aerodynamics and engine power upgrades might be the most appealing modifications, stopping your BMW E92 M3 in a fashionably matter is just as important. The owner of this Alpine White M3 decided to go in the safe way and installed a Stoptech big brake kit on his M3 at European Auto Source.
Up in the front is the ST-60 6-piston caliper with a 355mm cross-drilled rotor; in the rear is the ST-40 4-piston caliper with a 345mm cross-drilled rotor. With these StopTech brakes at all four corners, this M3 now has the stopping power to match the performance of the car.
The price for each set is $3,945 and $3,345, front and rear, respectively.
This generation BMW M3 is powered by a naturally aspirated V8 and it’s the only M3 that revs to an insane 8,300 rpm. Its S65 V8 was named International Engine Of The Year from 2008-2012 in the 3.0 – 4.0 liter category. Performance wise, the E92 M3 is a monster on track and on the road, some magazine tests show 0 to 60 times of 3.9 seconds for the DCT-equipped models.
