We have several options for improving the M3's braking. For simple pad replacements, but with improved performance over the OEM pad, we fit Ferodo DS2500 pads.
The next level of performance would be to fit Tarox F2000 front discs which are aimed at both road and occasional track day use.
However, for the ultimate in performance we fit the superb Alcon Superkit packages. We've used Alcon brakes on a number of our projects and strongly believe these to be the best brakes we've ever used.
We supply and fit replacement pads from Ferodo. Their DS2500 pads are a high performance track day pad, but are also refined for day to day driving.
F2000 discs are the ideal solution for those who alternate the use of the car on the road and the track. The curved grooves on the braking surface deglaze the pads and allow the disc to run cooler.
We have worked with Alcon for many years on various projects which have given us the opportunity to experience just how good their brake packages are, and they are without doubt the best we have used!
Our own demonstrator vehicle runs Alcon’s Superkit and the braking performance is spectacular. Whether you are looking for improved confidence on fast road use or looking for the ultimate lap time this package will over deliver each time.
The Alcon Superkits feature 6 pot front and 4 pot rear calipers which are machined from a single piece of billet aluminium. The larger and stiffer calipers use bigger Padgid RS29 pads and run on huge 384mm front and 370mm rear discs which contribute to better temperature management. Extensive testing has shown this to be the best pad and disc combination for the E92 M3 which results in strong cold performance from start-up whilst providing superior resistance to fading at high temperatures. All of this means superior braking and faster lap times.
