8 piston calipers
14" 2 peice cross drilled discs
2 pairs of sickass brake pads
and all the mounting hardware necessary so you can have some sick stopping power and even some track use...
Well, I'm not that serious about upgrading my brakes. I just wanted to know if there were some cheap options for bigger brakes. Are the M3 brakes bigger than a 318's? Would they bolt right up?
the m3 does have better brakes, but as said you would find a much greater gain when compared to the cost. Adding x-drilled rotors and some high performance pads would give you better stopping power anyway.
