Ireland Engineering sell a wonderful set that includes everything you may need., $ 2,175 bucks. bias valve and all the other goodies.

I always wonder why ppl spends so much money on 5 lug swaps as a base for bigger brakes instaed of going with the real deal.

330mm fronts with optional 28mm thikness as well as 310mm rears ...

cheers,
Frank

most people do 5-lug conversion due to the wide selection of wheels, whereas with the 4-lug the choices are very limited

you can use 12 inch willwood disks with their 4 piston callipers. a place near by me makes a kir for 990$ U.S. dollars however there is only 2 sets left and they arn't making any more. they also come with stainless brake lines and the mounting brakets
Goodridge stainless braided brake lines.
-CNC machined aluminum brackets and rotor hats finished impeccably in nickel plating
-Lightweight Wilwood Billet Dynalite II 4-piston aluminum calipers with bridge bolt bracing.
-Grade 10.9 hardware
im just deciding if i want to pick up a pair...

maybe if we get enough people theyll make a few more and we can get a deal.

yeah, its a shame that rpi won't be making any more kits. i'm gonna try out a kit. 11.75 x .810 rotors, dynalite 4 piston calipers, aluminum hats. i also am thinking of doing a 10.50 x .810 kit for those that want to keep the small wheels. for the rear i'm looking at just adapting a dynalite 2 piston caliper to the stock rotor.

i have a basic computer model of the hat, but i need to get a set of calipers and rotors for exact measurements. i want to put something out there that is a median between stock and the kits that cost more than the car. it'll be a little while though, as i just starting planning things out.

yeah im thinking about doing the same thing... but i want some big ass brakes nad iv already got the 17's so i can use the rpi one and get some copies made of the hats. but im still thinking about just buying the actual calipers and disks and stuff and drawing out what the hat would have to look like and getting somone to copy it. but i duno we'll see what happens.

So to carry out the regulaer five-lug from four-lug conversion on the wheel hub, what parts are used? E36? Similar hub...?

all the parts needed are on the e30 m3, you need the whole front strut assembly and the rear hubs and brake components
