I have bed the axxis pads and they always revert back to their squeeling at slow speeds... maybe the combination of these rotors and these pads is just not flying...but Id like to try something slightly above them in noise reduction and as long as they dont dust too much more then im cool with it....I like the stage 2 kit all around...sounds like the right way to go...

anyone has any experience with the metal masters first hand?, cuz manufacturers descriptions are not really my cup of tea to feel secure about a purchase..lol
The stage 2 kit comes with the Axxis Ultimate brake pads

No more pictures? I've only seen stock pictures so far.
I will be contacting you in about a week-2 regarding the CSL Wheel Package plus the stage2 brakes.

The stainless steel brake lines don't necessarily give you more stopping power, but they definitely increase the feel of your braking pedal - giving you a much more "direct" feel to your brakes
"Stopping power" is usually used to communicate the experience an engineer calls "gain" of the brake system. Basically, it's how much deceleration you get for a given brake pedal force. There are lots of ways to change this, but more meaningful measures of brake system effectiveness are stopping distance and driver control and confidence.

The general trend among friction materials is that as the temperature capability increases (a performance pad), the coefficient of friction (one of the factors multiplied in determining overall system gain) also increases. The result is that performance pads may actually perceptibly change the deceleration experienced for a given pedal force, among their other benefits. This doesn't necessarily mean that stopping distance will be shorter, though friction material selection is one of the tools racers have available when getting a system super dialed-in.

Here's a link to our white paper on braided stainless lines:
http://www.stoptech.com/tech_info/wp...teel_Q&A.shtml
My own car is an older E36, and I felt a significant difference when I installed the lines at about 100k miles.

Also, drilled vs. slotted is covered here:
http://www.stoptech.com/tech_info/faqs.shtml#15
There is a little greater friction between the pad and rotor, but not nearly as great a difference as you can get when changing pad compounds.

Hope some of this helps someone here.

Thank you for the clarification Dan

That's what I was trying to say, but you got the message across a little bit better I would say!

I'll run some numbers, but I actually think that buying the Stage 2 kit (with the ultimate pads) and ALSO buying the axxis deluxe plus pads is the same price as buying all of the components of the stage 2 kit separately with axxis deluxe pads (WITHOUT the ultimate pads).

What you can do is buy the Stage 2 kit and also order the axxis deluxe plus brake pads. Then sell the axxis ultimate pads to a friend, ebay, or here on the forums and you come out about even
Any updates Mike?

E46 M3 StopTech Stage Kits Available!

The replacement rotors for the M3 recently became available, and we can ship rotors either alone or in Stage 2 kits, but only slotted. We haven't yet done the engineering to determine whether they can be safely drilled. The primary issue there is not cracking, but the internal vane layout. Slotted rotors are always more resistant to cracking than drilled under hard use. There is a lead time of a few weeks, as we don't currently have slotted rotors on the shelf.

Part Number
86-137-01224
E46 M3 (except ZCP Competition Package) Stage2 2001-2005
$749 is our list price.

Now would be a great time to order, as I know there's at least one of these Stage 2 kits in process.

Stoptech doesn't have cross-drilled REAR rotors for 330s, right?
or do they have plans?
