    I've added the link to my install and initial impressions review on M3Forum.net as well. You can't edit posts here after a few minutes, so to put everything in one place, here is that same link on M3F (same as link two posts above).

    Thank you so much for taking your time in writing up such a comprehensive report.

    We truly hope that with your long term review it will benefit other M3 owners so they have an alternative source for their brake upgrades.

    Good luck to your new brake system and please feel free to advise if we can be of service.

    Thanks again.

    Long overdue and not totally complete with pictures, will have them added this weekend. But here is my review on M3Forum.net for the whole front kit, caliper and rotors.

    Caliper upgrade

    I notice you charge an additional $180 for blue color calipers. Can you explain why the extra premium for blue compare to black/red?

    I wished you could left it on my car.

    Rear Rotor Update

    Test fit was a success. Rear rotors fit perfect and we can now work on completing the PU kit.

    We have a test fit scheduled for rear rotors and more details will be available by the end of the week.

    cc charge

    By the way RB, let me know when you're going to charge my card. There is a $1500/day limit I'll have to do a one day bypass on - unless it somehow stayed in place from the card auth, which I doubt, considering the timing.

    Pictures for the rear two piece rotor

    E46 M3 Rear two piece rotor;
    Shining ring is an inserted iron sleeve for emergency drum brake, while the hat is made of light weight high strength "forged" alloyed aluminum. True High Performance light weight rotors w/o having to lose your e-brake





    Rotor size: 328x24 (OE=328x22, RB rotor is 2mm thicker for extra thermal capacity & strength) and will still fit under OE caliper



    Rotor Assembly total weight 12.5 lbs vs. OE 17 lbs even with 2mm thicker than OE




    Stock pad is trimmed about 5mm at the bottom (~50mm) to avoid interfering the OE caliper bracket spring.
