Re: Anyone know of a car that uses a Brembo/stoptech 355/32 rotor, stock?

I donít get it. If you buy from them theyíll give you free pads/rotors for life?

Re: Oil pan drain bolt stripped, can I drain oil....

It does seem to come up a bit too often here, but I would be surprised if your plug was never overtorqued at some point. Oil change 'techs' just crank on those things

Re: Best BBK for E46 M3

Apex says the 17x9 et30 should fit over the brakes, actually offering ~2mm more clearance over 17x9.5 et35. They think a 3mm spacer might work, sounds like the right route for me

Re: Getting Rekt by a 335i

New TMS Aluminum "Skidplate"?

I know itís a bit of a stretch just saying itís safer to have a big chunk of plastic under the front of your car than a big chuck of aluminum. Lighter too
