Are you able to source the GTS brakes? If so, how are they different from the standard M3 brakes? Can you PM me the price if you can get them?

Amazing build. Can't wait to see the final outcome.

If I may; the GTS brakes consists of 380 rotors with 6 piston calipers and braided stainless lines. Standard M3 has 360 w/ 4 piston.

Agreed.., I think the GTS brakes are made by brembo and are very similar to the readily available brembo kits. Not much advantage to buying the OEM GTS version.

Unless you're building a US spec M3 GTS

I wonder what an "imported" GTS would cost and why no one has done this yet. I think the GTS is definitely worthy of a impulsive decision by a wealthy BMW enthusiast.

If 5 lbs weight savings per corner are no advantage, you are right.

GTS Brakes are lighter (the rotors about 5lbs lighter per corner). The internals appear to be the same as on Brembo GT kit.

It takes a lot of time to do a quality build and as much as we want to finish it "yesterday" some things are out of our control and it takes time to get it completed.

But we are close

Some updated pics leak out on our Facebook page once in a while so you can see progress there as well
