Eric, that looks bad ass! I'm a little confused though... Weren't you the same guy that said after the jb+ you weren't going to do anymore mods? Seems like youve done quite a lot!

Now, let's put those brembos to the test at the track! Btw, you buy those things new or used? That shit had to be expensive!

LOL Dan, yes i am!!!! haha, i couldn't believe that i said that 2 years ago... hahahahaha... i told all my buddies the same thing... and yea... 2 sets of wheels, 2 sets of different suspensions, exhaust, 2 different tunes, and now BBK.... no shit huh?

im still trying to get used to the new paddle feel, feels like it wouldnt stop/bite like OEM but it actually stops... and also i freaking snapped a carrier bolt which is grade 10.9 and i've only got a temporary grade 8.8 bolt as replacement, so ordering the new bolt from dealer tmr and in the mean time, i wouldn't do too much brake slamming until the new bolt is back in.

i got them used on here.. been watching the thread for like 2 months and no one bite on it, was advertised at $4600 at first and after 2 months, we ended up at $3900 shipped.... this is the deal i couldn't pass, i know it will be stupid if i don't buy it. $3900 is like you can only buy the front new... so im happy with the price. they are 6 pots 355 front, 4 pots 345 rear, the brembo GT kit.

Damn Eric!!! I agree with Dan. You got the perfect track setup, you need to make it out this year! Oh yea, I remember the who "not modding more than Jb " .

Infineon was a blast today, even in the rain!

Yes they are and they are a blast to drive too. But BMW's are more fun to drive imo. I'm still surprised my friend ran his HRE's on the track I would be scared to chip them haha.

Great shots of Saturday! I didn't see anyone there on Sunday except Meepster and someone in a space grey e92 335i. It was fun racing in the rain lots of folks spinning. There was a serious crash near the end of the day.....red to immediate black flag and the track shutdown for almost 30 min.

Is anyone interested in doing some Auto X? There are some events coming up at Mather and McClellan AF and looks like a lot of fun. The entry fee is a lot less than doing HPDE events and for those who are scared to really track the car, this is safer too
