Had my BBK installed today, ready for taking the car to Austrian Slalom Championship on August 15th.
Thanks Jesse for the delivery in time!
Btw: My mechanic was impressed how easy the install procedure was - took him only 30 min for both sides.

Took my M3 to track today - Austrian Slalom Championship in Teesdorf, near Vienna. M3 is stock aside of MPPs BBK - which I really needed today!
starterfeld-jpg.28378


118 drivers, one Tesla (look at the white building on the right, you might see the M3).
The car passed the technical inspection and was assigned number 901.

20190815_092227-jpg.28379


The course was 2.4 km and rather fast (150 km/h top speed) for a slalom. We had two practice sessions and three timed runs, of which the two fastes are added for the final result.
I started with 2:11 min, then improved to 1:59.94. After this run I had to leave the place and cruise 5 km on a higway to cool down the brakes.Without the BBK I would not have made it - thanks @MPP!
Then I did a "slow" timed run (2:03) to have a backup time and one more "attack mode" run 1:58.24. I did not do the third timed run due to my tires (Hankook Evo 3) being very stressed at 33 degrees Celsius air temperature.

The Tesla won the street class E S2 and finished 88. overall, missing the total time of a Porsche Turbo 997 by only 3.5 secs - not to bad for a non perfomance M3.

AWESOME! CONGRATS! Do you have close up pics of the brakes behind your oem 19s?

Here we go... appr. 1 cm clearance from caliper to rim - if that was the reason to ask.

Btw: average consumption of M3 during a run: 119 kwH/100km

Once you go big brakes you never go back, the stock ones look so little inside 19" wheels.

We just got another 10 sets of these in stock!

On your website you state that it's 3.41 lbs lighter each. Is that rotor versus rotor? or rotor versus rotor and bracket? I'm assuming the bracket weighs a couple of pounds.

I just had dejavu, someone asked this exact question on TMC yesterday.


That is 3.41lbs lighter per corner!

OEM Front Rotor/Bolt: 21.09lb
MPP 365mm Rotor/Bracket/HD: 17.68lb

Got these delivered the other day😀👍
MPP 365mm front rotors and Rear rotors and street pads. I can’t wait to put them on. I’m doing these myself damnit! But of course this is after the car is lowered with MPP coilovers and I can’t fit my lame “low-profile” jack or ramps under the car 🤘. So I ordered these race ramps to get a few more inches of clearance. Left is the larger front rotor, right is rear same size as stock. General Ackbar Lego figure hiding on the left for size reference👍

We performed a test using our MoTeC C125 dash logger and some IZZE CAN-Based IR Brake Temperature sensors to prove the massive difference that this brake kit provides over the factory rotors. See below - almost a 100C difference in rotor temperature. It is clear in this data that after only a few hard braking applications that the OE rotor has gone thermal, with the MPP rotor still having plenty left in reserve.

I understand the MPP rotors are thicker. Do we need thinner pads to compensate?
We should be able to daily drive the rotors, right? No need to change them at the track?

The stock pads will work even when brand new, there was enough room for us to safely add 1mm of thickness to the rotor without any side effects. We daily drive our big brakes unless we are going on a road trip and need to use the 18" aero wheels! The only thing you might swap at the track would be more aggressive brake pads.

Thanks for the quick response.
I just read they don't work with 18" wheels. I have 18" forged wheels. So I have some clearance but probably not enough.
I measured best as I could and it looks like about 18mm near the ends of the caliper.

Please send us an email at info@mountainpassperformance.com, we can share with you the measurements that you can send to the manufacturer of your wheels. Often times, forged 18" wheels have clearance for big brakes.

I have had this break kit installed since early July/2019. I have the BBK and the street brake pads as well as the rear break kit but the factory pads.

These breaks have saved me several times from potential collisions. Atlanta drivers are stupid (yes I don't care to offend my fellow atlantans because too many of them suck at driving very badly) and they tend to perform lots of short stops in stop-n-go traffic. I always maintain a good following distance but when the car in front of you stops short from full highway speeds, you'd better have good breaks. These breaks have so increased my stopping power that I have totally forgotten about the inadaquacies of the Model 3 AWD breaks. Oddly though, the front BBK is so strong that the rear rotors have not even had a chance to fully bed in yet and it's been on since July.

I think this break kit should be on everyones top mods list as it is the most important mod from a safety and defensive driving perspective.

Thank you for review, much appreciated! I am happy we can help you feel safer on the road.
