View Full Version : Single pot brakes

Hey Jeff, others...

Got my E31 front brakes today. Gorgeous great things they are. Can't wait to get the rotors either. My only problem is pads... it looks like they are not common to other cars and are rare.

The BMW part number for the pads are 34111160296, but I can't find any equivalents in othher brands... I can get them direct from Bendix but only if I can find their Bendix/PBR part number. Else I have to ship them internationally (costly).

These ones (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Front-Disc-Brake-Pads-BMW-850-i-ci-csi-E31-90-95-850i_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33567QQihZ020QQite mZ300112242261QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW#ebayphotohos ting) are on eBay for $10/pair; MKD547 and MKD 548


Does anyone know the Bendix part number for the front pads on an 91-93 840/850i? (single pot ATE calipers)?

Many thanks in advance, Nick

Heh. Found this sweeeet site (http://www.roadhouse.es) with all the cross-refs.

e31 34111160296 BMW
e38/9 34111160712 BMW

I am not sure about them saying that the BMW part 34111160712 is the same though, as the calipers on the models this fits are different (however the rotors are common)

I also found out-

Ceramics are ICD547
Metal pads are MKD547

Cross ref to EBC brand is EDB856


The really nice thing about the 850 front brakes is that the rotors are common to e38, e39 & e32 so are easily available. The pads also :)


Here are the part numbers for the pads, with all the related part numbers / Cross references

Great thanks to BigKriss and Grave77 for their tips on this

they are the same pads of the E38 740i 98 model with big single piston brakes. same pads. I always boguth them for my E34 with single piston E31 brakes.

4 piston brakes are the pain !! very rare and u have to wait for some time.

Martin in Bellevue is running these. He knows what common pad choices are out there.
