Nice! are they 14" rotors up front? Did you swap in stainless steel lines or does the M3 already have ss lines?

I myself like a more cushiony feel at the pedal that rubber provides.. I know I'm wierd.

A simple paint correction/buff will fix that right up ( paint ).

And, I'll be sure to use less-clear camera lens (Nikon/Nikkor FTL, in this case ).

Sorry, I'm too honest sometimes.
You've hit it on the nail. Average 2 track days a month, and I've sort of given up on the paint, dirt/dust, making it look purdy, etc.

Yep (365/345mm). BBK comes with SS lines.

For those who track as often as we do, it's hard to keep the car clean.
They get dirty every 2 weeks!

I actually haven't washed my car in about 3+ months.... or something like that. I really don't remember the last time I washed it...and I tracked it in the rain..drove miles in the rain... went off at Big Willow in the dirt
My car is covered in dirt, both inside and out. OC3's car is way cleaner than mine

M3s don't come with SS lines stock


Brakes look amazing, and I'm surprised how much I <3 the reflectors.
I know I've always told you to change them... I take it back!

Nice! Jerez can look so hot, love mine!

Mind telling us how you got the paint damage? Just hoping to spread the word on how to avoid!

Unless you only drive it one day per month on the street then that is hardly primarily track use.

To each their own Brakes are certainly baller!

looks great. and yes im digging the reflectors too!

but I dont remember the last time i saw a car that needed paint correction so badly. stop taking it to the carwash you take it to and go elsewhere because their using some horrible washing and drying supplies on your M.

contact john at exclusive autodetail. he is john1c on the forums, or go to CA regional section you will see his post. seen his work a few times and hes the best in socal imo. pm him for a quote and tell him ammar referred you

if you do 2 track days a month and dont take care of your car then why have an M3 to begin with?
get a dedicated track car if you're so hardcore...that just looks careless and the explanation for a dirty car because its tracked 2 times a month is just so try-hard. My old E46 I used to track it around 2-3 events a month too and it was always immaculate.
nice brakes tho. I heard from Brian you got endless pads? you should post up a review after you take it out there.

Too painful to recount (involves a local carwash that "came highly recommended" and then a couple of equally-disasterous "experts" later...).

Street it about once a week.

Yeah, know his thread, and been meaning to give him a ring. He's very local to me. May be after a visit with him, and a set of new shoes (Anthracite Apex & RS-3's), I'll do a version 2 of this thread.

Couldn't get Endless in time for the install, so got new Brembo OE pads to start off with. Endless is coming. Soon. (that sounded oddly prophetic)

Yeah I see what you're doing James! I'm not bothered by public flogging - it's all good.

I'd take a brembo bbk in almost any colour! But I do like the contrast with jzb, nice work!

Brembos Look Great!


Just need some painted reflectors to clean up the look and some detailing to really make that Jerez Black really shine
