Look, I like the aesthetics of Brembos and the like as well, but the M is about function over form. I find it highly entertaining that the majority of folks here respond and concur with this gripe that is focused on looks.
Brakes are fine - the pads are not. As for sufficient cooling for hard track use, hey, this is not a hard track car. It's a street car that can be taken to the track. And the brakes are better than the competition.
