Then came the HKS Exhaust





had to paint it flat black after it turned all purple after Laguna Seca.



And new rubber for track days!



Somewhere down the line I got a BMW Performance Strut Bar as well.




Track day pics!











Also did the structural foam injection per BMW TIS.





Fast forward a year of tracking and misc stuff and behold new brake upgrade

ECS Big Brake Kit



My crummy old rusting calipers



The new parts!



Mounted!



Installed!








Going back to stock rims with spacers to find out that the Style 135 rims do not fit over 5mm spacers without hub extenders. Now to get those..






And thats where I am now.

There aren't many options for the rear. I run carbotech xp8 track pads in the rear during track days. For daily driving oem pads are fine.

Are you doing HPDE's or AutoX? I AutoX my e30, but wondering how you like the suspension set up of your ZHP for track days. Also, have you replaced any suspension bushings? Great looking car BTW!

I do HPDE around once a month maybe. The suspension setup is doing double duty. It is geared towards more comfort on the streets. the LCAB on the front has been replaced with a solid rubber one instead of the liquid OEM ones. I am plannig to get RTAB limiters as well. M3 motor mounts and maybe change the tranny mounts as well.
