Looking good!

E91's look so classy with a few subtle mods.

Have you sold the Oyster leather?

I really like the color of the calipers. What color is that if you're willing to share. It is a perfect color for a sapphire black and terra car!

Thanks mate. I was thinking to do them in standard red or yellow but ended up with this lol. the colour is called illusion copper from prismatic powders in US. It's done over metallic silver then clear coated. A bit of a pain to do apparently ...

Managed to fit the brakes on Sunday afternoon so quite pleased overall
Had a bit of an issue with getting the air out of the system but all i swell now!
Here are some quick snaps i took on the day, will try and get better ones soon ...
Kit details:
Zimmermann front discs (370mm), Pagid rear discs (324mm), EBC Red ceramic pads f&r, Delphi pad fitting kits f&r, Hell performance hose kit (30mm longer front hose), 10.9 grade steel stud kit, Eibach spacers (10mm front and 5mm rear), Febi handbrake shes and ATE type 200 fluid. I also re-used existing wera sensors as there was nothing wrong with them...





Rear discs are 12mm smaller in diameter so i though to compare the two ...







Would also like to say a massive thank you to Marc at Hel performance for the braided hose, Thomas at Pro Calipers for the caliper rebuild, Jack at BJV Engineering for taking on the powdercoating as not many people wanted to get involved in doing the finish i wanted, Kames (R99) for bleeding advice and finally my wonderful wife for pumping the pedal

Few things done since the last update
-313s gave way to CHs (19x8.5&9.5) as the summer/autumn setup with PSS tyres
-Suspension is now Koni STRT with Eibach Pro springs on the front and OE springs on the rear (haven't installed the rear springs as the car sits level now and really don't want the back any lower...) i've also replaces all the top and bottom shock mounts, bump stops and dust covers with OE Lemforder parts.

Few more things coming for the winter mode in the next couple of weeks...
