you are under estimating the power of BMW brakes! Had an E36 M3 with Dinan Vortech blower, along with Schrick intake and exhaust cams, supersprint headers and exhaust, with Dinan throttle body; the car must've been running around 350 hp with Stock brakes. The only upgrade I've had to do to the brakes was slotted rotors and Stainless steel brake lines, Pagid sport pads. The car used to stop on a dime. Never had brake fade either.
BTW, mabrook. I feel sorry for you and my cousin in Lebanon. I just shipped him Cayman S. I know there are a lot of pot holes, bumps, crazy drivers amongst the least.
BTW, wayne el 7elwayeh. No excuses, Kenefeh from SeaSweet.
