Do BBKs have the same issue, or is it time to simply get a dedicated car? ("Not to BBK" for this car would give me a nice chunk of change to start with a 944, for example.) With the extra disc area of BBKs, I assume the temps stay lower and thus less chance of stuff melting. I'd love to hear your opinion. Cheers.
We have track extensively with our 335i back in the days and with the BBK upgrade you will not see the same issues as the OE brakes. BBK will run much cooler, not to mention repeated stops without fade with proper pads.
