Thanks mate. I might do it...will wait a few months though just to see if I end up buying the bbk or not. How soon are you looking to get the bbk?
Ordering maybe next week. Will take a couple of weeks to arrive however.

Just looked at the pb ones on their site...seem a really good price! But thats what worries me...I know you had them before - how do you think they would compare to ap brakes?

wow them 405mm fronts are think I will definitely look into pb brakes when or if come to upgrade!

Do you know if 405mm fronts will clear 19" wheels?

Not sure how they compare. Never had them. My last set performed excellently but I never tracked them. I want them to perform well, and look great so fits the bill for me.

Don't think 405mm will fit under less than 20s iirc.

Nick, everytime I see your thread updated with your name against it, I expect to see pics - and lots of them! I shouldn't be at all, but I am disappointed with the lack of 5 pics per your every post! SORT IT OUT! p

Sorry mate. Will try harder. Want to get some some decent pics done as the iPhone ones don't really do it justice!

Whoops I mean your PB brakes that where on your 335 compared to the oem m3 brakes you have at the moment...

Let us know how you get on with the new PB brakes you order for the M3 when they are on!

Oem M3 brakes seem slow and despondent. Brakes on the 335 felt quick and sharp. ( and looked superb!)

If you fancy a set you should say now. Got one cutter, and another possibly in. If we could buy 4 sets in one go price would be sweet!

That is a very good question!

I assume you are, but if you aint got round to telling your insurance company, you wont be covered

I couldn't sleep at night with all the work that has been put in!

Insurance sorted through Adrian flux. Mods listed individually and prices given for future mods. Cost more than I'd like but hey!

Started trying to negotiate the bbk. Also mats and custom badges in the process of being ordered and a carbon fibre pedal set been ordered.

Stud conversion arrived today. Will get some pics shortly. Not sure if I will fit until bbk arrives however.



Front left tyre just fitted and had tyre fitting stuff over it. Received a large dose of maguiers tyre shine shortly after!

Some carbon shots,






Not really happy with the front spoiler as white blotches appearing! Hardly been driven! Mailed teddy at ssdd for his opinion?

Random door handle shot!?


I also may have bought one of these,
