Have you tried ducting to the rotors yet? I just installed ducts and I will be at the track on the 21st of June...I'll let you know if the ducts work.
Most economic option is to put in some decent pads. Unless you have some monster engine in the car the standard E30M3 brakes are pretty good, when they are in good condition.

I track my car and while I seem to be able to warp disks at pretty regular intervals, actually stopping the car is not a problem with the standard set up and good track pads (ferdodo ds3000, Mintex F4r etc)


I have an E30 with an E30M3 suspension and brakes setup.

I am looking for more brakes without spending 1600-1800USD in a front big brake system.

Has anyone used E36 suspension and brakes on the E30? If so what is involved in converting from E30M3 to E36?

Are there any other options? I have heard that E28M5 brakes bolt directly on the E30M3 Struts. Can anyone confirm this?

What is the best and most effective as well as economic option available.
