>> "Racing" CB compound: I don't know about this either. When I tracked a Scuderia with CB, it terrified the fuk out of me the first few laps because it simply wouldn't stop, and that was with track compound. Compared to cold steel brakes on my e46 at the time with PFCs, the e46 stopped much better. Compared to my GT3 today with steel brakes and PFCs it would be a joke. Once the Scud's brakes came up to temp they finally could haul the car down.
>> "most people lean toward steel because they wear longer": This isn't what I've heard either. In fact, I've heard that the only performance advantages of CB are the weight and longevity.





don't know what the current CB racing compounds do, imagine it's evolved significantly from the 430 scuderia though.

regarding wearing longer, remember hearing that CB street brakes get destroyed in a weekend of lapping, where steel rotors can go a full season or two.

I mentioned cost in mine, especially for track use. On the other hand, if only for a daily, the ridic CB cost should pay for itself* in about 200,000 miles assuming replacing steel brakes every 25-30k miles @ $1000 per axle.

*assuming they actually do last forever. Plus, if someone is willing to spend $15k extra to remove the wing from a car because of looks, why not also spend $15k for better looking brakes?

I like the green and purple colors, but those aren't proper M5 colors. But maybe conservative colors stopped being a thing with the baby blue E39?

Red, Blue, or Black. No more unfinished paint jobs please, when will that trend go away?

Am I a bad person for wanting an F90 M5?

Probably because they are too cheap
