Interesting. I do have a ton of the D-Force 18x9.5. I could combine with a Nitto NT-01 and do shipping at $50 for the seet and free mounting if there is enough interest. Likely a group buy deal since we don't stock tires and I would ship a pallate in for us to mount.

I run a 275/35-18 with that same Nitto/DF setup.

That would be great. Do you need any spacers? Maybe you could offer a track combo package that includes wheel/tire and brake stage 1. This is all i plan on buying for my M3.

Absolutely not. Click on the link, full product details there. Any "BBK" for AT LEAST less than double that amount is pretty questionable.

It isn't really a package to sell if it is specific for you - but luckily I have guys that put together custom packages all day long here. Only we call them orders I use a 12mm front and if I ever remember to bring it, I will put a 12mm spacer in the rear, but it isn't required.

I am very interested in your stage 1 kit. (My rotors have some interesting patterns of spider webs.)

Do you have it for the rear too??
By the way, how difficult is to change the rotors?? I've never done it myself, but would like to avoid the dealership.
Thanks!

Keep in mind thatq heat fractures are normal and not an indicator that a rotor is junk. You are typically good until they catch your fingernail. A rotor with less uniform cooling, poorer metalurgy, etc will develop these faster.

No PFC rears - the parking brake (big) does not allow room for the 2-piece attachment ring.

I can swap rotors myself in less than an hour and I don't work on cars a ton these days.

This looks like an excellent option! BBKs are a PIA because it limits your wheel selection or you have to spend lots of $$$ on 19" tires.

Funny how the one BMW with fixed calipers seems to be having the most brake issues (135i).

What issues does the 135 brakes have now?
I know there were some issues with the pistons that turned out to be due to improper pads being used. Once proper fitting pads were used, they were 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."

It can and will... Until then, if you want to buy the kit we will tell you exactly what parts to use and what to do. This is honestly basic maintenance for a lot of folks, easy to learn, and maybe worth the investment in the Bentley manual, which will cover a lot of the basics even if the M3 isn't specifically covered.
