Zimmerman Drilled Rotors
Zimmerman cross-drilled front rotors are manufactured in Germany to exceptional standards of quality. BMW performance cars are famed for the quality of their brakes, but many owners want to go even further with their cars. Zimmerman rotors are made for exceptional stopping power on BMW MINIs.
Serious drivers and car enthusiasts know that braking is just as important as accelerating in getting around the track or down a windy road. Cross-drilled rotors allow heat to escape more quickly than conventional rotors, resisting fading and uneven wear. These rotors will help your MINI stay effective on the street or on the track much longer than the stock brakes.
Other cross-drilled brake rotors are often not heat-treated after drilling, leaving sharp edges that decrease brake pad life. Zimmerman cross-drilled rotors feature holes with edges that increase pad life and prevent cracking of the rotors. The holes also provide a visual wear inspection for the life of the rotor.
EBC Yellow Pads
Although a full race material and capable of high temperature use with very good wear life, this new formulation sets a new trend in race type brake pad compounds that can be used on the highway. The “bite” from cold is superb which is uncommon with race materials (normally requiring warm-up) and makes this a pad which can be safely used on both street and track.
This new formulation has been used by numerous championship race and rally drivers and is truly a milestone in brake pad material development. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with zero rotor damage and similar dust to original pads.

Stainless Brake Lines
These stainless steel brake lines maintain consistent brake pressure and precision brake modulation, especially during threshold braking. They are manufactured to meet DOT Compliance Standards, and every line is 100% tested to a pressure of 4500 psi. The Teflon® inner brake line is very resistant to expansion under pressure and will not degrade from exposure to brake fluid. The stainless steel braid covering provides support for the Teflon line and is extremely durable against incidental impact and abrasion. Finally, these brake lines are coated with a clear abrasion resistant cover for maximum protection against chafing. All necessary brackets and fasteners are included with each line kit.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years, more often if you track your Mini.
