x-drilled are worthless & just for pure looks unless you have some serious power under the hood & can afford a brembo big brake kit

Actually it doesnt really matter because the bigger brakes you have, the more stopping power they have. The greater the stopping power the larger contact patch you have to have to not lock your wheels. ABS kicks in and e30 abs sucks compaired to new software. Basically the e30 cant fit large enough wheels so its all not worth it to get awesome brakes.


However best setup of all time for e30.
ATE powerdisk rotars on the front
Mintex Redbox all around
And the brake booster from a 7 series.

Shit thatll stop ya.

sounds similar to my brake setup :P

i have the 7 series 25mm MC, ATE slotted powerdiscs, SS Brake Lines, and EBC Greens on 225 tires. i havent disengaged my abs, but i have no problem locking the tires at any speed above 40mph on dry pavement.
