Looks great... One question, why red? Why didn't you go Fire Orange?

Thanks

I had the same similar BBK setup on my EVO X and I really like how well it performed on the street and track

Red is Rotora's signature color and my car will be featured in a Magazine to promote their BBK kit.

Also we are on a deadline to finish the car by this week to get ready for the magazine photo shoot.

My plan is to have it painted Fire Orange after the magazine feature.

Where did you get your Fire Orange manifold painted before you changed it to yellow?

Nice.

I like the red-grey-orange contrast of the BBK-Volks (TE-37's?)-and the M.

That sounds good I was hoping to see them orange someday.

I got all my parts painted thru Roman@ESS

Maybe in the future.

If I can get a sponsorship for the wheels why not.

They have been in business for a long time now, I believe since early 2000's.

Their new Caliper Design looks in par with the Brembo BBK's.

Their BBK kit for the E9X M3 is also priced really good, cheaper than the Brembo's, Stop Techs, and the AP Racing BBK kits.

Rotora makes a pretty great product IMO. I had the first Super Challenge Kit they made. I made a small write up on it on here too.
