We might need to add more brake paste/anti-squeal, because whenever I brake under 15 MPH my ear's bleed

Carbotech™ XP10™

When Carbotech™ unleashed the XP10™ to the general public it was an instant success. XP10™ immediately gathered multiple regional, divisional, and national championships. The XP10™ has a very strong initial bite friction material with a coefficient of friction and rotor friendliness unmatched in the industry. Fade resistance is in excess of 1650°F (898°C). Due to the high level of friction and bite, this material is recommended for cars weighing around 2,900lbs or less. XP10™ still maintains the highly praised release, excellent modulation and rotor friendliness that have made all Carbotech™ compounds so successful. Carbotech™ XP10™ is not recommended as a daily-driven street pad due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise.


pwned

Or because going into anybody's FS thread and linking to cheaper stuff will usually get a post deleted.

Umm, wut? There was a second set of pads? And they were OEM and you didn't want to put them on, even when we were reminded by the brake wear sensor that didn't fit?

Yes, it's totally HPF's fault that you did something the mods told you not to do and got you banned.

Yeah, they make a lot of stuff for E36 and E46. I think it's even listed on their site that they make hoods for E46 coupes and sedans.

The lack of complexity is one of the reasons I like my car so much.
