I can just imagine these bad boys on the car!! Epic Nick!

Where did you get these from?

I've been contemplating on upgrading my brakes, even though I only had my entire brakes (pads, discs, sensors) changed just 1000 miles back!!

Look very impressive - going to look the nuts behind those big ol' wheels.
When does the interior go in?
Very excited to see the end result - if we organise a Cambs meet for March or April will you come along and show it off?

Just google it. I had the same kit on my 335d but slightly smaller fronts. Great kits at reasonable ( in terms of bbk's anyway) money.

Breaks look beast! Should have no problems slowing her down with those on.
Love the orange, the little accents over the entire car will really bring it all together.

You need a set in your life! My kit is the 405mm front set up that only fits under 20s. I can honestly say I've never seen a bigger caliper!

Got the rear discs (380mm) out of there box and slid the caliper over,





And the fronts with the huuuge calipers slid over,



Calipers will look more complete once decals applied ( silver ///m)

I love them!! Quality looks great too...

I will 100% order them within next 2/3 months. Love the orange colour too...for me im thinking yellow with black decal or some shade of blue with white decal.

On the site it seems to show that the 380mm disc can be used with the caliper from the 405mm kit...I hope that is the case, but wonder if the caliper + 380mm disc will still fit a 19" rim?

If only the 405mm would fit 19s!!

Paul, the chap I ordered them with on cutters ( tates) has pics in his thread of yellow, 380mm kit all round. Not sure if you can use these calipers with the 380 disc. Think they be to big to go under 19s but mail Dan. Sure he will quickly confirm or deny.

Car still not back

New Pedal covers arrived from states in super quick time and looks like I've swerved duty as posted as a sample, fingers crossed. Pedals look superb.

Decals applied to brakes. Going to re do fronts as slightly out of alignment and swop the front layout to opposite but you get the jist. Hoping the cars back this week so can get the brakes on:

Been surprised by the 'residual' on some of the second hand exhausts, so as and when I take the leap looking for new options between the extreme of say BM PE and a Miltek (know they get a good right up) will be something else to consider...

If I didn't already have the tubi I'd definitely be getting a full system. From my research the quality is on par with the big name brands but half the rrp. Lots of r& d gone into the system aswell.

Alright mate. I've followed this thread from the start and kept my comments until now.

This will be the best m3 ever.

I know it's not finished but I've seen enough too decide! It's fuckin bananas!

Paul's m3 saloon was another quality modded m3 but this is a different league! And that was a few years ago.

Very well done buddy it really is a belter!

X-pipe looks great, any idea on the sort of noise you will be lucky enough to listen to yet?

Dear OP

Haven't been around for sometime, but have just checked for one reason or another. Came across your thread, what a great read. However I have to ask, do you think you have problem- some sort of compulsiveness maybe?
