Press release after the jump.
With the AC Schnitzer high performance brake system intended for the BMW M3 (E90, E92, E93), unrestricted driving comfort with high stopping capabilities in all situations are both guaranteed. The Schnitzer high quality brake system provides outstanding performance and values which are generally only found in sports vehicles. In combination with the height-adaptable racing suspension (compression and rebound) which underwent testing on the Nurburgring Northern Loop, creates a superbly exciting ride that any driver is sure to cherish. With the AC Schnitzer trim, the famous neutrality of the M3 is brought to a whole new level when the ACS3 Sport Coupe underwent testing. The latest brake system comes with fixed calipers fitted with 6 pistons up front and 4 at the back.
The brake discs, which are slotted and internally vented on both the front and rear, respond with speed and precision. Complete care and attention has been provided to keep the weight to a minimum to boost suppleness. In spite of the considerably bigger dimensions, the unsprung weight has been cut by 4 kilograms in relation to the regular brake system. Simultaneously, AC Schnitzer high performance brake pack is famous for its outstanding deceleration values even in unrelenting usage, in both extremely high temperatures and equally extremely wet conditions. The enormous discs come at 380x35mm at the front and 355x32 at the rear ensures a dynamic stopping power that remains stable even after twenty times of use. The brake system is offered for all three versions of the present M3 both as a front only or a complete front and rear system.
