STOPTECH INTRODUCES BIG BRAKE KITS FOR ALL-NEW 2011 BMW 1 SERIES M COUPE

Compton, Calif.  (May 2011) - StopTech, the ultra-performance division of Centric Parts, has introduced a series of front and rear Big Brake Kits for the all new 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe in four- and six-piston configurations.  StopTech Big Brake Kits provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade resulting in stronger, more reliable performance on and off the track.

 
 
The four-piston front StopTech Big Brake Kits for the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe include a pair of 355X35 slotted or drilled floating directional AeroRotors featuring billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel studs, DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines, StopTech's highly-praised high performance street pads plus the company's patented, forged, high performance, four-piston ST-40 calipers.
 
The six-piston StopTech BBKs for the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe use larger 380X35 slotted or drilled floating directional AeroRotors and six-piston ST-60 calipers. The rest of the kit remains the same: billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel studs, DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines and StopTech's highly-praised high performance street pads.
 
The rear StopTech Big Brake Kits for the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe include a pair of 355X32 slotted or drilled floating directional AeroRotors featuring billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel studs, DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines, StopTech's highly-praised high performance street pads plus the company's patented, forged, high performance, four-piston ST-40 calipers.
 
 The BMW 1 M Coupe is the latest M-sport car from BMW. Based on the 1-series platform, the 1M receives significant updates to just about every component. The bodywork has been flared to cover much larger rubber all around, the engine has been upgraded to a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that produces 335 horsepower and much of the suspension has been borrowed from the company’s larger E92 M3. Although this 1-series M Coupe is smaller and less powerful than the current M3, BMW says it is a true descendant of the original E30 M3.
