I agree with superfly. I don't understand how this happened. I assume the M3 is like every single car out there and has 2 separate circuits connecting each front wheel with its diagonal opposite rear wheel. So in theory, if you develop a leak anywhere in the system you still retain 50% of your braking power. I actually had a brake line puncture due to rust in my old 1998 Intrepid when I was a student, and even though the pedal was noticeably softer I still had some residual braking power.
