Im sure if you change those with Brembos it throws that technology out the door. Anyone?

I don't think anyone is complainin about the rotor size. I do think it's about time BMW went to a fixed caliper in the M cars. It's just wrong to have a sliding caliper in a $65k car, even if it works just fine.

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."
