Is it worth doing? If you want better brakes, get better pads.

If you want better brakes u need an upgrade... even the standard brakes on my M3 and any m3 are dissappointing.

Sure, but it's the pads. Chuck a set of RS29s on there with some decent fluid. You should only need more than that if you're on track, racing.

I fitted db 9s to my 330 with standard 330 discs.

Fitted under 17s cheap for replacement discs pads are same as range rover .now got them fitted on the Ro.

Great mod....less fade...better pedal feel and cool brownie points.....way better than a pad and fluid change

I have mine fitted with genuine m3 csl discs so no machining of caliper just needed brackets and brake lines very easy to fit took me about an hour to do both sides and bleed brakes.

I had some 996 turbo brakes on my mk4 golf gti with r32 didiscs, really simple cos brackets are machined to fit both the original hub and caliper, and stopped on a six pence, absolutely awesome!! IMAG0152.jpg

Rich or anyone else got the info to get these done.?

What's needed to do it...

You need calipers 996.351.425 and 996.351.426 (Boxster S fronts/also various other prosche models), should be able to find a set on ebay.

i picked up a set of brackets and hoses from creation motorsport, if you want to run standard M3 discs you will need the calipers machining or CSL discs for a straight fit,

choice of pads is up to you, and you may need spacers depending on what wheels you run.

Thanks Rich.

Really appreciate it.

You done rears as well.

Wonder if it gets confusing with mine being a 320...?

Should ya second part number be 426 not 416?

M3 CSL discs are £300 a pair

Porsche calipers about £350 a pair on ebay

Plus new carriers and pads.

Maybe new hoses

You're approaching the price of an off the shelf kit, not Brembo, but still a decent kit.
