    E34 M5 brakes on an E24/E28?

    I have an opportunity to buy the brakes from a '95 M5 Euro 3.8 which is being upgraded with a UUC brake kit.I'm wondering if these parts will bolt directly to my M635CSi? I know that they'll clear my 18" wheels but what other issues will I face? any experience out there?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    No they won't fit..., box them up and ship to me ;)

    You should be fine..., all E34 calipers fit the E28/E24 To be safe I'd Google the E34 forums..., I recall seeing an application chart on one of the E34 sites a while back... can't recall the url. Sorry.

    Maybe throw this question on the other board..., there's a guy that just upgraded his 88M5 to some 95 M5 Nurenburg (sp?) brakes.

    I have them on my e28 m5 awsome!

    You need the calipers carriers and the e34 m5 rotors. I used hawk hps pads. The car has so much stopping power. If I am going 75 and I put the pedal to the floor it stops so fast and hard that the horn goes off. Only down side to the e34 brake kit is you need 16inch or taller wheels.

    No, the M5 master is good. You could put a 750i or e34 m5 master but I don't know how much of a difference it really will make. So stops really hard.
