    Default What's to swapping to N'Ring Pkg. brakes up front?

    Interested in making this upgrade, and was wondering if you guys could help me figure out what all is involved in this swap?

    If it's as simple as Rotors/calipers....how easy it to get ahold of Nurburgring Pkg. calipers?

    Thanks again for the help,

    No.

    And it's NŁrburgring*

    It's a package on the M5, which included more than suspension. The M Sport already is equipped with it's suspension...interested in it's brakes now.

    well if your so good at spelling it, why didnít you spell it correctly the first time instead of abbreviating it so we donít understand you
    And for your information it didnt include any different brakes

    What is the Nurburgring Package?
    In addition to the standard Adaptive M Suspension fitted to all 3.8-liter M5s, the Nurburgring Package could be added as an extra cost option. This consisted of ZF Servotronic (vehicle-speed sensitive) power steering, a 19mm rear anti-roll bar, wider 255/40ZR17 rear tires on 9x17-inch alloy wheels (already standard on the Touring) and a control switch for the adjustable shocks that allowed them to be locked in the firmest position. This package became standard on all M5s as of May, 1994 production, with the exception of the Servotronic steering which became a separate option at this time.

    Well, I stand corrected. Simply edited the title so it wasn't super long.

    Well, what's to upgrading to the 345mm brakes then guys?

    The problem with the nurburgring (with the umlaut, I don't know the ascii keystroke to get it) brakes is that:

    1) They're very expensive, and nearly impossible to find used. We sold a set from a wrecked car that we dismantled for $1500/fronts, $600/rears. If buying new, you need the calipers (edit: duuh..no carriers). Doubt they'll be sold loaded, so expect to buy the antirattle clip and possibly the pins, as well. Rotors are also unique and expensive -- a dealer only item.

    2) It seems there are virtually no pad options available in the US aside from stock -- again, only available from a dealer. So, if you like textar performance and dust, it might be a worthwhile purchase. Otherwise, the UUC UBBK isn't that much more expensive, comparatively speaking, and people routinely elect to use that versus the alternatives at my shop.

    The other thing is, when doing an upgrade of that nature, all four spaces need attention to preserve balance and keep the ABS/ASC happy.

    best, whit
