Also to others: how many people have the dealer change the fluid so they can cycle the ABS system or whatever to get the fluid out of that system? It doesn't seem that everyone worries about that here. Otherwise you'd mix your SRF with whatever crap BMW uses stock. Not sure if that matters or not.
EDIT: What is a good place to order the PFC01s?
It's hard to say how much I go through. I have fairly new front rotors installed and the original rears. I also have fairly new Ferodo 2500 pads on. I will let you know after the season how well it went. I know this is a ways out but its the best I can do.
In the end I can promise you that a BBK is a huge waste of money for you. The V class (production cars) in the 24hr Nurburgring use stock calipers with upgraded lines, pads and I believe rotors from what I saw last year. These cars are nearly production level with of course a cage and gutted as much as possible for weight.
