why don't you stick with oem like textar or pagid. even twr would be better imo.

What is your price for PSSs?

245/35/19
275/30/19
the 245/35/19 is $285/tire + taxes
the 275/30/19 is $368/tire + taxes

we mount 19" wheels for $20/tire if the wheel is off the car.

if it's on the car unfortunately it requires an additional .5 of labour.

There's so many options it is honestly confusing. I went with Hawk HPS cause of the reviews and look what happened, they suck!

I'm running Performance Friction Carbon Metallic Street pads in the front cause I got them for a steal ($40). They are supposed to have less initial bite when cold, yet the brakes on this car are already awesome compared to anything I've owned before so I haven't noticed. When warm they grab better than OEM and should be good for a couple auto-Xs and a track day this year.

I'm open to suggestions. I don't mind sacrificing some initial bite for better performance when warm and less dust. Price isn't a concern as long as they are < $100.

yep for $20 that's tires mounted and balanced!

given that they're under 10" wide. over 10" wide balancing is extra $10/tire because we need use the machine that the bodyshop has behind us.

cheers

okay so the question now becomes: if BMW can create this oil alongside castrol, what makes it so difficult for other manufacturers to take the castrol 10w60 and recreate an identical product or similar product that will pass the regulation testing.

what makes anyone think that analyzing and recreating an oil is difficult with today's technology and knowledge? yes the TWS is created alongside the engine, that doesn't mean the technology that was developed into this special oil can't be recreated after the initial creation.

if technology was so proprietary the initial product such as the castrol TWS and BMW M engines, then why is it that other manufacturers can design similar products?

if the US marketing team can suddenly change the "recommended oil" to another variant, what makes the "german market/design team" any different? what if the story lines behind the fact that castrol germany made an exclusive deal with bmw germany and it was a marketing pitch?

can't believe what everyone says unless you tried it is what i'm aiming to reach at.

this is my first fill of the racetech GT1 oil in my M3. i've burned almost no oil and get approximately 400km every tank when the light comes on. I'm at 7000km since my oil change. that is a fact and i think for the $50 in savings i'm going to believe it does the job quite well.

Don't get me wrong, I am very appreciative of anyone trying to save members a few bucks but in my case where I don't ever plan to sell my M, I think based on what I have read I will stick to the oil that was recommended, tried and tested.

My opinion is that if anyone is trying to save $20 on oil then this is not the car for them.

I used akebono, they're fantastic for the m3! I recommend them over pagid any day.

akebono is a fantastic brake pad option.

they're not as expensive as hawks ceramic and makes very little brake dust.

pagid sometimes squeal depending on the caliper you have and rotor you use.
