Nice! Did you get front and rear?

I'm still debating whether or not I want Brembo or Stoptech. Thinking about Project Mu as well.

Yeah, complete Trophy kit!

If you can swing Project Mu's I'd say go for that. You'll probably be the only one with that kit. My friend got Endless for his M3 = drool!

Now I really can't wait to get my wheels, it's going to be a painstaking 2-3 months wait again and let's hope my oem 189 wheels will clear lol

BMW Performance for 335i = No I don't like any of their actual "performance" items.

What size? I've had consistent luck on Craigslist on used tires. If money isn't an issue, American Tires offers $15/tire warranty for up to 3 years iirc. Other than that, I've lucked out on wheel+tire packages from members or CL.

Eh. Probably won't be in attendance. Usually crowds this big gets broken up in Milpitas -- especially in that plaza.

To be honest, it wasn't until recently that I started paying attention to tires but so far they're fairly good and the grip they provide outweighs the road noise which isn't bad to begin with. Can't wait to burn through these and try out some V12s

It's a good mentality to have. I believe that meets should be a once-in-a-while thing.

If you don't mind ordering them online I say go to simpletires.com

I got Falken 452s here size 265/30/19 for 188 bucks each. Came within the week. Have to order by phone though.

They're not loud for me. Even before I got the muffler delete, was pretty quiet

I rode on DW for the longest time so maybe that's why I think they are loud.
