I am looking for a REASONABLE upgrade of the front brakes on my 88 M3. Anyone have advice on something that does not cost 2K+ for better stopping power. I have stock calipers and Hawk HPS pads at this time and am looking for something that will come close to E-36 stopping power. Thanks in advance.
What I did on mine for autox purposes is rebuilt all the calipers (cheap), I run a set of Hawk HP Plus pads (they're more aggressive than the HPS) w/shims to cut down on the squeal, and I bleed the brakes often (Super Blue/Typ 200 alternatively), I put stainless steel brake lines on it but that was for track events they don't make a damn bit of difference on the street.
