The Stoptech kit is superior when cold and hot with the Stoptech pads that come with it. No vibrations or anything either. These are the brakes that the M3 should have come with.

What is the cost of the replacement parts and who makes that rotor? You chances of finding a stocking store outside of OE, Brembo, and Stoptech are slim. I know I can get a stoptech disc same or next day since there's a distributor in houston that stocks them.
