Re: E90 m3 track / hdpe brake advice

I have stock brakes

Pagid RS19s all around
SS Lines w/Motul RBF600

These should do the job just fine.

Re: tlav17's 2004 Imola Red M3 Journal

Z4M is on my wish list as well. If you are trying to decide between Z4MC and E92 M3. The E92 M3 is significantly heavier than the E46 and Z4MC.

Get the Z4MC, it's a true sports car.
