LED tails installed

This is a simply installation. A quick search of M3F turned up several helpful threads with tons of pictures. Thanks to EAS for another great product.

Right side done

All done. Total time was maybe 1.5 hours.

I have decided that my next step will be brakes. With my first track day in this car coming up in Oct, I want to make sure they are up to the challenge. I'm not in the market for a BBK, but I am torn between fresh OEM parts, or stepping up to CSL parts since it's an easy conversion. With new pads, lines, and fluid, I think that could be a nice upgrade, for a reasonable price ($1500ish), that will be just fine for street driving (and it looks cool).

Any opinions/ideas are welcome. I don't think I'll ever track this car that hard, but I do want to be confident that the system is capable.

note: I'm due for new pads and possibly front rotors anyways, so this would be a good time for any upgrades.

I upgraded to the csl brake kit, ultimate pads and SS lines and I like the setup. But I wish I saved more money and upgraded to BBk.

Interesting... so have you been in a driving situation where the csl kits left you wanting a better system?

I'm usually a big fan of doing something right the first time, so I'd hate to regret going to euro or csl equipment, but those bbk's are big $$$$.

Thanks for the input!

No not at all. They perform very well. I might should've gone with OEM pads cuz the ultimate pads are little aggressive on the rotors and they sound aggressive too.

Cool. I'm leaning towards going the CSL route. Can you really hear the brakes with the ultimate pads, or is it a result of the rotor itself? Thanks for the info!
