Because those stock rotors look so tiny now! :) BTW, did you
powdercoat your calipers? I've seen some handpainted ones
after track use and it's not pretty.

Nice wheels tho, they're high up on my list...

Yeah. There 19". I used high temp engine block paint and painted them myself. Powder coating would be alot better but nobody around here does it. The paint is holding well been on two weeks now and washed twice. Time will tell.

Nice car, I mean very very beautiful baby. I got the same combo I love it. I want to ask you how is your handling with the 235/35/19 front and 275/30/19 in the back, what tire is it. I use the same front size Pirreli P7000, and 265/30/19 in the back on Hartge 19" classics. Do you think sticking with 235 upfront with 275 in the back is good, howz understeer at low and high speeds. I've also seen 245 in the front with 275 in the back???
By the way I heard Hamann used to use Supersprint as their manufacturer, is it still true. How is it that Hamann in Germany sells its muffler at 3500 DM ($1600) and here it goes for $2600. Shipping an M3 is almost $1500 from Germany.
Are you looking at any Carbon Fiber air box upgrade, like hamann's or Mk Motorsport, or like the CSL collector airbox.

Love the handling now that the 19" and Yokohama AVS's are on the car. I've increased my max speed on most curves by at least 10 MPH and the car seems to understeer a little less. Still there but getting better. I thik it will totally disappear when I install the H&R's and experiment some with the air pressure. Still needs a little more downforce at high speeds. Above 130 car seems to get light. Lowering will help with this some. I think the 245's will work real well and I'll probably try them next set. Yes, Supersprint still manufactures parts for Hamann and I believe I'll wait until I see some figures on the new exhausts and air boxes before I sink any money into them. Let's face it BMW has done a good job engineering the M3 and it'll take a while for any aftermarketers to make any real advances.

rolling the fenders. 285's will be close if you stay at the standard 1.2"/.75 inch lowering should be OK but any lower in the rear and they might rub on the rough dips.
