Hi, I’m wondering if anyone has any idea what brake callipers these are and What disks and pads could fit. There currently on a bmw E91 335d Estate 2009.

 

it has M3 Bits on it but when looking on the web  none match up to mine.

Also I can see the pard code on one of the brake pads is FDB4216 or FDB4218 if that can help anyone

sorry for poor pics. I will eventually be getting the car up in the air and whipping them off. I was just hoping wile Im waiting for a new car jack to come. I may have been able to find out what discs and pads they were n get some ordered🤞🏻 
 

Hopefully imageproxy.php?img=&key=575e03922b33905cimageproxy.php?img=&key=575e03922b33905cimageproxy.php?img=&key=575e03922b33905cimageproxy.php?img=&key=575e03922b33905csomeone can shed some light 

 

cheers if you got this far 👍

Morning Again 

Not easy to identify the calipers from the pictures they look like 4 pot which follows the performance upgrade theory. Blue Calipers seem to be a BMW favourite colour at the moment.

Standard brakes for your car are Front 348 x 30 solid disc Rear 336 x 22 solid disc Standard BMW calipers front and rear

M3 Brakes were Front 360 x 30 perforated disc Rear 350 x 24 perforated disc Calipers could be Brembo or 4 pot BMW M sport

Wheel size may restrict going up to full M3 spec in order to clear the calipers. When you get the wheels off look for any part numbers and use those to identify them.

Take a look at www.realoem.com you will be able to search both your model (put the last 7 digits of your Vin number in the search box) you should be able to find what was standard and if there were any Msport parts and part numbers. You can also search the M models to check what parts are required if you go that route, if you click on the part numbers you can see which other models they were used on.

I hope this helps

Good Luck 

Dave

Hi good morning.

Thanks Dave, I had a feeling more detail pics or part numbers would be needed.

Also the alloy size is 20 inch. I kind of measured the discs ( very inaccurately ) front were about 360 and back about 300.

i say inaccurate as I couldn’t get the tape measure flush up to the disc. 
 

again thanks Dave. Once cars up in air and it’s stripped I’ll get some pics and numbers.

The jak came but my Allen key went snap whoever fitted them must have welded them in 😂 waiting for some loose nuts spray and a socket Allen key. 

 

after whipping the wheel off and being able to get a good look around them most of any marking are worn off or over coated with paint. But I’m pretty sure the 3rd pic it says Brembo. 
 

there some numbers or letters in the 1st pic but my eyes are bad I can’t make any of it out. 
 

 

also in the 2nd pic looks like the brake disk isn’t big enough for the pads/callipers? And looking round the disc itself I see no markings to suggest what make, codes or size. 
possibly going to be another waiting game waiting for a few bits to turn up.

Hi Robert 

20" wheels sound right quite possibly staggered (wider rear rims) Isnt it just brilliant when a supposedly well trained tyre fitter or worse mechanic uses an air wrench set to well above the required torque to tighten up our wheels !!!😠

Brembo Calipers would point to 360 mm Brake discs, my X5 4.6is runs 360 mm solid discs at the front as well so if they stop a 21/2 ton 4x4 and they certainly do,  they should do a cracking job on a 3 series touring 😁

Apart from up grading the discs to cross drilled/perforated there isn't much you can do by way of improvement, even that I believe would be just aesthetics. AP racing did some fancy 6 piston calipers but they would be horribly expensive and for road use not show a great improvement over what you have already.

With a good ECU upgrade you should see 280+hp 600nm torque which will make your touring fly, my brother inlaw has a tweeked 530d touring serviced by BMW now on almost 300k (he commutes to Germany) it still gives 45mpg on the motorway 30 if he is hammering it, and he does frequently. This is his 3rd and he will replace this one with a 335d great engines his only deviation from BMW service schedule is oil changes every 5k and Auto box serviced to ZF schedules by a ZF specialist.

Enjoy your Beemer

Dave
