Yes - I have done it! I did it when refurbishing my 1986 Euro M3. However, at the same time I fitted an AP Racing big brake kit (330mm - 13 inch - drilled "floating" discs and mounting bells, 4 pot road calipers and mounting brackets). The pedal does seem firmer and better balanced, but obviously some of that is down to the brakes! This car stops! Gone is the only real weak link in the drivetrain!

The actual fitting is very easy (though make sure you drain all the fluid or it will get messy!).

$225 sound expensive though - I paid 85 ($135) for the ATE part (the original master cylinder is made by ATE, and this part is EXACTLY the same but with the BMW logo stamped off).

Anyone intersted in pics of the AP set up or want the ATE number (I still have the box) of the master cylinder, email me direct. The pics are at the developers, so be prepared for a couple of days' wait!

'86 Euro ///M3,
