Yes, it does. It was the airbag wheel installed on the car in Europe.

I ran the Hawk pads for years on my E46 M3 with StopTechs and was happy with them. I'll let you know how they work on this set-up after I've had some time to live with them.

Great work so far. Are those BBS badges on APEX wheels? :/

I totally agree but this one was beat to shit. Salvage title, mismatched hood, etc. it just had a decent interior and the handles so it was totally worth the price.

Nice setup btw.

Yes they are, and I am unashamed. I had the badges from an old set of RXs and they fit. I figured since Apex ripped off the BBS wheel design there wasn't much shame in running the center caps.

Cool stuff- interested in the parking brake adjustment - do you have pictures of this? Going to need to reference when I go at it. Also where did you source your brackets? Rally Road or Ebay? I think RR is out of stock.

I bought the brackets from Rally Road. I wouldn't buy any knock-offs, as it's not really fair to the guys at RR who put in the effort to design and perfect the brackets just to have some dudes in eastern Europe with a lathe rip them off.

It's a really easy adjustment if you don't have wheel studs. A screwdriver through one of the bolt holes let's you reach the adjuster. Just pull up the ebrake handle two clicks, and move the shoes outward until the rotor drags on the pads.
