And the seats? Headroom? And did they effect the ride quality at all?

If you had to buy one, would you choose Stoptech or Brembo?

the seats are great, I drove down to ocean city a few weeks ago (4 hours there and 2.5 home), they sit slightly lower, so plenty of headroom (I bought the adjustable brackets - so I could raise them another 1.5") - ride quality? They dont make the ride any different

I would buy the STR Stoptechs (Trophy Series) 1st - then tough decision between the Brembo or regular Stoptech

The only way you can work in a Mpower bulge onto a sedan or touring hood is buy buying the MorVision Powerbulge. hen you can weld it and you will have no problems with the difference in heat exchange between the differend materials and the bondo.

Sorry, but that is definitely NOT the only way to get the power bulge on a touring.......I just used the ///M3 hood. Bolted right on. (Using m3 fenders and headlights helped) haha (not sure why most of the conversions I see keep the facelift fenders, hood, etc)

Very nice touring BTW!!!!! Great color, clean and very well thought out. Every little detail is perfect. My 4.8is is le mans blue......oh, so gorgeous.
