These are the best race pads available for this (or any) BBK. Period.

These were going to be used on an e90m3 Race Car project that was
abandoned. These are brand new in the box and are ready for some serious
lap times. Do not confuse these with Carbotech. These are the real deal.
Cobalt Friction is not as well known as Pagids or PFC but blow away the

Bump for a great pad...I ran a set of cobalt friction spec vr's on my E36 M3 back in the day. Awesome torque and they wear like iron. These must be nuts.

They are FANTASTIC

1:47.3 this weekend at Infineon in a 3000 lbs (w driver+full tank) 300whp e36m3 w Brembo 4-Pots
These are super-consistent power grip and last forever. How race pads should be. Never goin back.

Some lucky guy got those!

I used to run Cobalts on my E36 M3. Those were the best damn pads I have ever used, and trust me, I tried a ton of different track pads until I found the Cobalts. Once I found them, I never tried another pad!

Garage List
For future reference, how's the noise on street stopping? How about dust? Are these purely a track pad?
