Overheating your brakes can end an entire weekend at the track and is the most common reason for premature brake failure and wear.
Hi-Flow Molded ABS Cooling Ductwork:
The HARD Motorsport Brake Cooling DUCT kit is designed for maximum efficiency specifically for the BMW E36. Race inspired by modern duct design of top motorsport teams and manufacturers.
Easy Mounting / Removable Front Bumper:
Because the ducts are supported by the frame rail, you can remove your entire front bumper without the need of disconnecting ANY part of your brake cooling system. No need to fumble with bolts, screws, and duct clamps, or unintentionally ripping out your flex tubing in the process.
No need for extra inlets:
The kit provides all that you need for mounting brake cooling ducts directly to factory mounting points on the frame rail of your BMW E36 M3. These ducts draw cold air directly from the design of the bumper. Our quality ABS plastic molded ducts are designed to endure the rigors of racing. Durable and easy to manage.
No need for all that flex hose:
While our kit reduces the area of interference, space is limited, so contact may still occur at full lock.** However, our kit uses a fraction 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 contour-molded ABS chamber ducts / inlets
- Left and Right HARD aluminum mounting brackets / abrasion plate
- (Optional) left and right Brake Cooling Backing Plates + 3ft of High Temp quality flex hose & Hose Clamps to complete the duct kit!
Optional Backing Plate: Save 10% when purchased with the duct kit.
More about our backing plates:
Cool air is delivered directly to your brakes via our carefully fabricated backing plate, instead of blasting the front of your tire with unnecessary heat from the brake components. Our 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.
We have backing plate options to suit your specific brake requirements!
- OEM to 332mm sized rotors - powder coated black
- 355mm sized rotors - (currently in redesign)
** Tire clearance must be checked after installation while the car is on the ground. The ducts may not eliminate all of your contact issues at full lock depending on several variables. Steering Limiters are available if needed.

Slight modifications may be needed for fitment with '95 M3, non-M models.
