StopTech Introduces Big Brake Kits for New BMW 5 Series
 
Industry, Calif. - April 23, 2012 - StopTech, the ultra-performance and racing division of Centric Parts, has introduced a front Big Brake Kit for the latest generation BMW 5 Series. StopTech Big Brake Kits provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade for more predictable and reliable performance on and off the track.
 

 

The six-piston front StopTech Big Brake Kits for the 2011-2012 BMW 5 Series include a pair of 380X35 slotted or drilled floating directional AeroRotors featuring billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel studs, DOT-compliant braided stainless steel Teflon brake lines, StopTech's highly-praised Street Performance pads plus the company's patented, forged, high performance, six-piston ST-60 calipers.
 
The so-called F10 platform BMW 5 Series is the sixth generation of BMW’s iconic midsize sport sedan. It was designed by Jacek Fröhlich, and represents a departure from the Chris Bangle styling of its E60 predecessor. The F10 now shares a platform with the BMW 7 Series (F01), and features a new-to-the-5-Series front dual ball joint short-long arm suspension, and rear multilink suspension.
