Thread: BMW 6 piston Performance KIT x Front and Rear Performance Rotors

    BMW 6 piston Performance KIT x Front and Rear Performance Rotors

    Hi Everyone, that's my first post in the forum! I've registered for a while, but didn't introduce me before.

    I have a question about the BMW Performance rotors:

    - Like some here I can't just change the front brake set and just leave the rear as it is. The BMW 6 piston Performance kit (https://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-33...ing/ES2215444/) with the brackets are for front only.

    But I have found this:
    Front https://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-33...ont/ES2228825/
    And this:
    Rear https://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-33...ear/ES2504069/

    Can I just install both on the stock braking system as it is or this is for the Performance, 6 piston kit? If the answer is the last, what about the rear brackets?

    However, If these front and rear rotors are just "plug and play" and fit our stock braking system I should prefer because will be more than enough for my needs (and cheaper).

    The performance rear and front rotors should be just plug 'n play and shouldl work with the existing braking system on our non-M E46 cars.

    Thanks anandoc!!
    It's time to change rotors and pads and I don't want to spend a lot with brake force that I don't need to use.. I just want to improve where I can and get a better colling.

    Any suggestion of brake pads that will not increase my budget to much but won't take cost benefit from the new rotors? I don't care for the dust..

    Welcome. Hawk HPS I think is a good balance but some dust. There are others that dust less, probably discussed in our brmake subforum

    EBC Red Stuff. Minimal dust, great street performance, and very long service life.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Red stuff pads are a solid choice.

    Man, that 1500 price tag for the BMWP brakes new keeps looking more "reasonable" with every passing week

    Nobody is selling used, might have to just pull the trigger
