yo guys, here is a DIY big brake kit for e90/e91/e92/e93. i am going to try my best do explain what i did. everything was easy. the only thing i thought would be hard is bleeding the brakes. if you know how to bleed the brake line, you are good to go....

How does it perform now?
Long said the whole kit is 3400, so I am assuming that it will cost 1700 for the front brakes he purchased.

Hi longtran, have u measured the BBK discs as compared to OEM ones? Are they any lighter?

Thanks for the write up Long, I just ordered the Wilwood kit from UUC Motorworks and will be using this for sure. I take it to bleed the brakes I just undo the bleed nipple and pump the brake `till fluid runs ?

Very nice mod and very well written, they really fill up the front wheel opening.

In the above photo, note that E92 rotors have a Geomet coating to eliminate rusting on the rotor areas not swept by the brake pads. Another nice little touch on the E92.

BBK's are not necessarily designed to make you stop quicker, but instead allow you to stop quicker more often by generating less heat (more surface area) and disapating the heat that is generated faster (vented).

If you don't pinch the break line you will loose brake fluid and introduce air into the system. If that happens, then you will need to do a full brak fluid flush by bleeding.

Yes, but by pinching the brake line is there a possibility of damaging it?

keeping it kinked for long periods of time will damage it but pinching it for a lil but wont hurt it. the lines are pretty dense as it is and keep in mind the fluid gets hottt so the line has to be able to take punishment.
