E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
Unless you are planning to do a number of track days per year, it would not be sensible to go to bigger calipers and rotors. Your car isn't heavy enough to need them. Nor in reality fast enough to require them. Your first post is a great package for a normal car to have much better braking performance.
Tyres are also a massive contributor to this. Don't buy crap ones to go with the brakes.
For what it's worth I have Hawk HPS pads and they're great. They stop my car on a dime, probably 50% harder stopping than oem, and WAY smoother. I can stop from 60 to 0 in almost no time, and while you're pressed forward, it feels so smooth you'd hardly know you're braking... if that makes any sense. I love them. The only side effect though is they sometimes have a squeek that can get annoying.
