Earlier this year, STILLEN and AP Racing teamed up to launch the AP Racing by STILLEN Radi-CAL line of big brake kits and it is incredible to see how the line has taken off. These kits are just flying off the shelves! However, what has been most exciting for us is seeing how the BMW community has embraced these kits. Throughout the world we are seeing some great BMWs replacing factory brakes and upgrading to AP Racing by STILLEN Radi-CAL. However, one of our most exciting upgrades to date came into the STILLEN Southern California Performance shop a couple of weeks ago to get measured and came in again a couple days ago to get their kit installed – the Hamann BMW 335i!
Getting the Hamann 335i Fitted
Before rolling out a new AP Racing by STILLEN Radi-CAL brake kit, our engineers must ensure that it will fit the vehicle properly and that was the first step in getting the Hamann BMW 335i set up with our kit. Our in-house brake engineers meticulously measured the dimensions by hand to ensure a perfect fitment. Once they knew the specific dimensions they were working with, they began drawing the brackets in CAD, creating the rapid prototype test pieces and finalizing the kit.

After the kit was finalized, the Hamann BMW 335i was brought back to the STILLEN performance shop for installation and it now holds the title as the first BMW 335i F20/F30 to have an AP Racing by STILLEN Radi-CAL big brake kit installed. It has front 6 piston calipers with 370x36mm front rotors and rear 4 piston calipers 360x28mm rotors. The kit looks great and we’re sure the Hamann team will enjoy the top notch performance they provide as well!
