It was simply stunning
I liked it so much that I already booked the next lap - which will be next week

BTW, the ringtaxi (M5 E60) also runs with stock brakes.
They do roundabout 300 km on the Nordschleife each day, with 4 adults in the heavy E60, an do not experience any problems with the stock brakes.
It really seems to be a matter of the correct breaking technique, like Eau Rouge already stated.

I've noticed in a couple of threads that people are saying the competition package wheels are not forged. When I go to the M3 sedan build it option on the BMW site it states that they are forged. Does anyone know for sure?

The ZCP wheels are cast (OEM by BBS). The normal 19" wheels are forged (OEM by Fuchs). Several threads have covered this issue.

I believe they change the standard pads for somewhat higher rated track pads. Can you imagine the dust from the standard pads? And these pads need to be changed after every 10 or 15 laps IIRC. I will confirm this in July.

I had a 'Ring Taxi ride with Philipp as taxi driver in Oct 7, 2008. His driving skills were not shown to their best advantage because there was intermittent rain, a couple of accidents, and my buddy in the back seat was squeamish. It was a slow and steady 10m30s. A waste of 185 Euros, back when Euros were worth something.

I have also seen Philipp at almost every one of the 6 Nordschleife driver training sessions I attended in 2008 and 2009. He was instructing groups of Minis, 330i's, 123d's, and M3's. He is a very talented driver as well as a super nice guy.

I'm sure I will be seeing him 3 more times this year at the Nordschleife. Hopefully I will be able to comment on his instructing skills after this year.

ZCP Performance Impact of Tire, Wheel, & Spacer Changes

BMW M team's Philipp Wänninger interview talks about the ZCP car being tuned/engineered to the new wheel setup. What impact on performance will changing the wheel, tire or spacers have? I am not an engineer, but it seems to me making changes would more likely end up having a negative impact on performance.
