I'm guessing regardless of what BBK you do, it's more about the master cylinder in the m3.

I've heard from others with BBKs that the pedal feel is improved, but still not Porsche hard at the top.
To me the SS lines didn't change the pedal feel at all, at least not with new oem lines. If you have high mileage rubber lines, some improvement is probably there.

The changes from oem to BBK is like going from braking with your foot to braking with your toes, the change is very drastic. Pad compound also will play a role in the pedal feel, less compressible compounds will give you a firmer pedal.

The rubber bushings used in the oem floating calipers don't help with pedal feel and consistency of the brakes either.
