I haven't tracked my car yet but one day of tracking (not racing I assume) and the pads are shot! Is this for real? I've tracked previously owned cars and I've never gone through a set of pads in one day. I've cooked (brake material cracked) a set of OEM pads in one day but to wear them out! Was this an 24 hour endurance track day?

So in other words, you're trying to game this process of free maintenance ?

Mine has 25,000 miles on it, with OEM, and that includes 5 track day sets (4 track days, and one w/ two drivers). No reason a set should have failed after just one day. Sounds like B.S.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
