E46 330 Race Car Project - Suggestions

Hi All,
First of all let me congratulate you on a fantastic site. I have completely stripped my entire interior of the 330, including the dashboard, without damaging anything... All from the DIY's from this site. Absolutely brilliant.

So, currently building a BMW E46 330Ci race car but having a few issues of what to buy. So, have come to this oracle of knowledge for advice. I'm getting the roll cage sorted (extremely slowly) but still need to source some components. This is my first race car project so not looking for BTCC / ALMS spec, but am interested in reliable quality, and value for money. Cheap stuff breaks and some kits are just rediculously overpriced for what they are. Not going to specify budget as I want honest opinions from people that have the kit installed, and experience of it. So looking to get:

1] Brakes. Either full kits or just disks and pads with a particular fluid?
2] Suspension. OEM replacements, or coilover kits? Factory set ride height and damping or adjustable? Not going to be running on slicks and cage will pick up rear top mounts.
3] Replacement bushes? As I'm pulling this all apart it makes sense to replace all of these.
3] Strut braces and anti roll bars?

This will do for starters. Many thanks in advance and look forward to any advice you can offer.

Ian
