Do you need to cool your front brakes? If yes, why?
You might be better off getting better pads !!

Not necessarily as all BMW's have ducts for the brakes anyway...
And, good pads work better at temps !

Better pads, or if you are really serious and have the budget, go with the Brembro bigger brakes kit. Depending on how your car is setup now, you may need bigger wheels to accomodate the bigger calipers.Brembo Big Brake Kits, E36 M3

Brake cooling is important, but usually not needed on street cars. It is more likely that you will get a larger increase in stopping power and heat dissipation through proper pads. Brake duct cooling is a better option for track cars where the pads are under constant abuse for extensive periods.
