Looks great Socket. Love the rotors and sprayed calipers!

Have to admit, was looking at mine the other day and did think they look quite underwhelming :/

I like the new rotors - assuming you have bedded them in, how are they compared to your stock rotors (before they were worn out)?

Is there a noticeable increase in braking performance? In any case they look cool.

Did u feel a big differnce OP ?
i sure didnt. lol felt similar as oem when i upgraded but with no DUST so i was satisfied.
im assuming u would realise the difference only on a track with alot of hard braking. not normal driving.

Brake cleaner, wire brush and old PJs (more colorful the better)

Maybe you should have invested in an exhaust first and had it installed at the same time.. it looks really stupid with the stock exhaust poking out of a carbon fibre quad tip diffuser lol

Looks amazing Socket! Now to get the black shadow line trim or wrap your existing chrome ones. I love that M3 look but my car is too slow to put it on, so I just deleted my foggies on the m-sport bar with 335is air ducts lol.
