I tracked just fine with stock brakes and pads. I'm not the fastest by any means but get my share of point by's. You just have to manage your brakes a lot more. Am I happy with the stock brakes? HELL NO, but the E36 didn't have a true //M engine- end of story.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
