My only issue, which I think you may not have noticed, is that the rear rotors are backwards. But, I'm sure that was just an oversight and we've all seen worse.

Actually the rotor drill pattern is correct on both the front and rear discs. The front and rear discs are not positioned identically because they use different drill patterns. There is no issue or oversight here.

The GT system that his car is equipped with utilizes a 4-4 front drill pattern and the rear disc uses a 4-3 drill pattern.

The orientation of both front and rear discs is determined by the rotor vanes as Ilia mentioned. This item that cannot be scrutinized through these images posted until the wheel is pulled and looked closely. The correct vane direction for these discs is that the outer most point of the vane edge to rotor lip should be sweeping toward the back.

On Brembo slotted rotors, the top of the slot comes first and goes downward toward the back.

If you would like to see the Brembo technical literature, let me know and I can share it with you.

Felix, I noticed the M3 have the same coloured hats for the front and rear brakes and the 1M has different colours like mine. Did you have to correct this on your side, or are they now available with the same colour?

I love the car. The only thing I would honestly do is raise it a little. Lol! I can't believe I'm even saying this! Lol! But I feel it would look so much meaner it it went up just a tad. Great build! If you don't mind powerbeast. What is you final cost on your car? Have you figured it out. Pm me and let me know. I'm so curious how much it costs to build a car like this!

You guys make it so hard to stop modding! I can't keep up with you Felix!

I realized you changed out your PSS for Falken? I'm assuming you will have to raise the car to track it.

I'm not knocking it because overall it is really sweet. Is the cage in the rear bolted or welded in?

Just awesome. Congrats! And which side skirts are these? Maybe it's been answered, but too many pages to go through.

No I disagree!! Perfect ride height completes this masterpiece of a build
