Information: This Tarox 340mm 10 pot compact conversion kit will fit your BMW 3 Series E46 318i. The Tarox sport 10 piston big brake kit has been designed to suit most performance cars. The small narrow lightweight Calipers make them ideal for cars fitted with 18” wheels. To keep the compact kits affordable yet maintain the levels of brake performance associated with a TAROX brake kit most of these kits use single piece discs with O.E specifications which have been heat treated, combined with a TAROX caliper – usually the B280-6 or the new B30-6 – braking performance is perfect for fast road drivers working to a budget.

Tarox offer 4 brake disc designs:
- Tarox C83 – Straight Grooves
- Tarox D95 – Cross Drilled all holes countersunk for crack reduction
- Tarox F2000 – Grooved discs ideal for increasing friction between pad and disc increasing pad bite.
- Tarox Sport Japan Plus – Multi drilled and multi grooved discs. Superb cooling and increased friction for extra pad bite!
In principle the more the better, the benefit in having multi pistons can be summed up as follows:
- Perpendicularly distributed pressure on the pads, resulting in more even wear of the brake pad Smaller pistons compared to those used on traditional calipers work perfectly parallel to the piston chambers, thus avoiding wear and loss of brake fluid
- Increased cooling action of the pads, due to more airflow behind the pad’s back plate
- Less stress factor on the caliper itself
- More clamping action resulting in more braking power due to the presence of more pistons
- Firmer pedal
- Piston Size
The diameter of the pistons in the calipers are specific to each application to take into account the car’s master cylinder. Fitting a TAROX kit does not involve the replacement or the modification of other brake components (e.g. master cylinder, servo) and does not interfere with electronic devices like the ABS or SBS.
