- Complete pre-assembled axle set
- One pair of Alcon CAR97 Monobloc 6 piston calipers
- One pair of Paragon 355x32mm (14.0” x 1.25" ) 2-piece rotor assemblies with black/hard anodized 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum hats, stainless steel bobbins, and anti-rattle clips
- One set of performance brake pads - your choice of compound.
- Caliper mounting brackets and all necessary hardware
- Goodridge DOT approved stainless steel braided brake lines
- 1992-1999 BMW E36 M3
- Lightweight single-piece aluminium Mono-bloc design for optimum strength
- Staggered piston bore sizes for improved brake balance and even pad wear
- High stiffness (firm pedal)
- Pin-mounted pads provide low threshold pressure and minimize unwanted noises
- Features dust seals to improve durability and protection against debris / road salt
- Floating 2-piece design allows thermal expansion of the rotor while minimizing deformation and ensuring the rotor is self-centered with the pads
- Superior braking and cooling efficiency
- Features directional ventilation vanes to create suction, turbulence, and guides cool air through the rotor for improved heat dissipation and increased resistance to cracking
- Made of CM-250 special formulated high carbon alloy cast iron. Allows for an optimal bite, thermal characteristics, high-temperature strength, and durability
- Heat treated to release stress in the rotor to avoid deformation and vibration
- State-of-the-art CBN surface machining to ensure better break-in with new brake pads
- Excellent thermal capacity to minimize brake fade
Curved Directional Ventilation Vanes
Features 48 directional ventilation vanes to create suction and turbulence, and guide cool air through the rotor to achieve better heat dissipation and increased resistance to cracking under harsh track conditions. Each rotor is left or right side specific, and the ventilation vanes are optimized to spin in a particular direction to pump the maximum amount of cool air through the rotor. This design allows the rotor to run up to 30% cooler than O.E. rotors and increases cooling efficiency by up to 30% over standard 1-piece units. Brake fade and judder are minimized during extended sessions. This means the brake system can withstand heavier track usage and provide consistent braking performance lap after lap.
Slotted Friction Face
Slotted rotor face pattern improves brake consistency by constantly cleaning the contact surface and dissipate heat generated, and gases released when the pads come into contact with the rotors. Slotted rotors have a superior advantage over blank rotors in wet or raining conditions by preventing water films to form between the brake pad and rotor surface.
- CNC machined from lightweight 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum
- Unsprung weight reduction
- High strength and durability
- Black/hard anodized to increase resistance to wear and corrosion
Floating Bobbins & Mounting System
Utilizes T-Bobbin rotor to hat mounting system to allow "float" in both radial and axial directions, and minimize brake judder. The high quality stainless steel hardware are corrosion resistant which allows secure mounting, and smooth expansion and contraction throughout heat cycles. Anti wear clips (McLaren spring clips) are utilized to slightly pre-load the rotor assembly and minimize rattling noise.
Caliper Mounting Brackets
CNC machined caliper mounting brackets to ensure superior strength, durability, and secure mounting of calipers to knuckles.
Paragon Brake Pads

OEM Fitment & Functionality
- Direct bolt-on without any modifications
- Properly sized piston and pad volume. Designed to work flawlessly with OEM ABS and brake master cylinder while maintaining proper brake bias
- Compatible with OEM rear brakes
**355mm brake kits generally require 18" or larger wheels, but fitment varies due to different specs / wheel design. Verify fitment with wheel fitment template.
**380mm brake kits generally require 19" or larger wheels, but fitment varies due to different specs / wheel design. Verify fitment with wheel fitment template.
About the E36 M3
The BMW E36 is the third generation of the BMW 3 Series range of compact executive cars, and was produced by the German automaker BMW from 1990 to 2000. The initial models were of the four-door sedan body style, followed by the coupe, convertible, wagon ("Touring"), hatchback ("Compact") and the rare four-door convertible Baur TC4 in later years.
The E36 was the first 3 Series to be offered in a hatchback body style. It was also the first 3 Series to be available with a six-speed manual transmission (in the 1996 M3), a five-speed automatic transmission and a four-cylinder diesel engine. The multi-link rear suspension was also a significant upgrade as compared to the previous generations of the 3 Series. All-wheel drive was not available for the E36, unlike the previous (E30) and successive (E46) generations.
The high performance E36 M3 is powered by the BMW S50 or BMW S52 straight-six engine (depending on country). The E36 M3 was introduced in 1992 and was available in coupé, sedan and convertible body styles.
Following the introduction of its successor, the E46 3 Series in 1998, the E36 began to be phased out and was eventually replaced in 1999.
