Overheating your brakes can end an entire weekend at the track and is the most common reason for premature brake failure and wear.
The HARD Motorsport Brake Cooling Duct kit is the only complete package that you need for mounting the plumbing for brake ducts to your BMW E36 M3. Our kit incorporates a powder coated aluminum tube between the inlet and the flex tube. Space is limited on the E36 chassis and going full lock will likely damage your flex tube. However, our kit uses a third of the length of flex tube over any other kit, so replacing this short hose is much easier on a budget and is a time saver in the paddock.
- Left and right molded inlets
- (2) 3" silicone couplers
- Left and right HARD aluminum duct tubes
- Left and right HARD aluminum mounting brackets
- (1) high temp. 3" flex hose
- (10) stainless steel hose clamps
- (option) left and right Brake Cooling Backing Plates
Designed for the track, our kit uses a powder coated aluminum bracket that mounts to the frame of your BMW M3, which allows removal of your front bumper, while leaving the entire kit in place for fast track repairs and tuning. No need to fumble with bolts, screws, and duct clamps, or unintentionally ripping our your flex tubing in the process.
Cool air is delivered directly to your brakes from our carefullyl fabricated backing plate, instead of blasting the front of your tire with unnecessary heat from the brake components. Our complete kit resolves this factory design flaw.
The HARD Motorsport E36 M3 cooling plate design features our large 'pocket' to allow for more air flow into the proper places. You need it in the E36 M3 brake hat, so the air will travel through the vents into the rotor. We also incorporate an inner hat retaining ring that keeps cool air from venting away from the rotor for maximum efficiency.
Unlike other backing plates, our backing plate extends past the rotor hat to provide heat shielding from your suspension components.
We have backing plate options to suit your specific brake requirements!
- OEM to 332mm sized rotors - powder coated black
- 355mm sized rotors - powder coated silver
Our quality ABS plastic molded duct inlets are designed to endure the rigors of racing, while saving you hundreds of dollars on your build budget! They're even lighter than expensive carbon fiber or resin alternatives that crack and yellow over time.

Hard Motorsports builds flawless product of which this brake kit is another example, offers great customer service and support and is a great source for your BMW needs at all levels!
This is a great kit. Be done with your brake ducts in a couple hours instead of trying to piece all this together yourself. I love the aluminum tubing that also supports the actual inlet duct - no more figuring out how to attach that stuff to your bumper. ALSO FITS E36 328i with one simple change.
Fit nice and had everything I needed. Can tell this was put together by someone who knows these cars.
After doing some research, I found Hard Motorsports had just what I was looking for and at a better price than everyone else.
It literally took less than two hours to install the kit. I already had cooling plates, so all I had to do was secure the brackets and clamp it in place.
I purchased this kit along with several other products from Hard Motorsport for my Time Attack / hill climb M3, and wasn't disappointed at all with ANYTHING I received. The kit mounts up wonderfully to preexisting mounting holes (on my M3, at least), and everything fits GREAT. This is a very well thought out kit, and Hard Motorsport seems to have taken plenty of time to ensure that you don't have to do any engineering of your own to make their product fit. Everything lines up perfectly, there is ample clearance for the tires at full lock, and it works EXTREMELY well with the 'quick release' front clip that we've got on our race car. I spent a good deal of time researching and looking around for the best brake cooling kit available, and I am 100% confident that I found the best one on the market; I'm not sure that there are even any other companies offering this intricate and complete of a kit for ANY price, much less the extremely reasonable price that Hard Motorsport offers. Definitely an awesome buy - and, most importantly, it looks SUPER sick on my car in photos!!! (note: "MOST" importantly, it fits and works GREAT...but looking snazzy is a huge plus, too!)
