E34 Abs

I read that the e34 ABS is activated by nose dive. And that if you put big brakes on the car you can seriously affect the braking, in an adverse way, of your car. Anyone upgrade to big big brakes?

Where did you read a "nosedive" triggered ABS? LOL... ABS is triggered via sensors per each wheel. They're pulse sensors and they measure a geared pulse sensor per wheel.
To answer the big brake ques, I have the larger Brembos and they're incredible, and they don't cause any adverse reactions with anything. You might think about investing into the Bentley service manual for 5 series 89-95. It's a little pricey but it will eliminate the doubts from alot of mis-info (IE: nosedive)

You can get the Bentley manual from Amazon, Barvarian Motorsport and a ton of other BMW resources.
