I'm already two steps ahead. I'll be picking up a BBK for this car when I go to build my brake system. I've just elected to pick up some new hardware for now. It turns out one of my front rotors was warped and the other caliper needed a rebuild so there was nothing but gain here.

We're pretty active around these parts and many of us are DIYers as well. Pretty technical bunch compared to a lot of forums

But what I see daily are typical German car colors; blacks, silvers, grays and whites. They look nice, I agree, but to me the appeal is what the M cars were in the 1980s an event. Its not so much that I want to be noticed, but more that I want to stand apart from the crowd. And to me, Phoenix Yellow and Laguna Seca Blue are two of the best ways to differentiate your M3 experience from the norm.
