Yellow Stoptech BBK Arrived!

Here comes my new Brakes. ST-60 F and ST40 R
Got them from Trinity Autosport, they gave me the best price and free shipping, the packages also arrived in good very condition.
Background information, I track my E92 M3 about 6-10times/year for the past 3 years. I ran stock brakes with SS lines+Castrol SRF brake fluid+ PFC08 compound race pad and Stoptech Sport pad. After went though 3 sets of front pads (oem+2 sets ST) and 30% PFC08, my front rotors measured below minimum thickness,and shows some heat checking and I can feel small cracks around drilled holes with my nail. So instead of buying a set OEM rotors which cost $700 for the front, I decided to upgrad to a full set of Stoptech BBK.
Spec 6-pistons Front with 380*35MM Slotted Rotors(Slotted for track always!) Rear 4-pistons 355*32MM Rotors. OEM 360mm front and 350mm rear. Third pic showed side by side of 380 vs 355 rotor, all I can say is that 380 is HUGE! As for the choice of Caliper color, a voice in my head tell me don't worry about fade after tracks, go wt ever I like!

Teaser
Volk Racing ZE40s matte Blue is ordered and should arrive in March.
Spec 18*9.5 et20 front
18*10.5 et20 rear
