I hope you have better luck with them then I did. They are weak... I'm very careful with my car and took them off and three of my wheels had bends in them after like 1-2k miles.... don't ever recall even going over any potholes at the time. Also - I paid like $600-800 MORE for a custom hand brushed finish which looked amazing... but 2 weeks into getting them there was stress cracks all over the finish on every wheel and they looked like shit.... they got worst as time went on. Not a happy camper after waiting 10 weeks to get them. Overall, I just thought they were cheaply made and fit and finish was very poor. My current setup is lighter, stronger and actually forged and I have had absolutely no problems with them. Don't get me wrong, if i didn't have all those problems I may still have them to this day. Good luck with your setup.

damn, i hate to hear that. i know a few people with them locally that haven't had any issues. so, it sounds like they have quality problems.

i waited 3 months to get mine and i have about 1500 miles on them. i guess i'll pull them off this weekend and inspect them.

Update July 24th: New diverter valve is in (GFB DV+) since i suspected my stock DV was not osculating correctly and staying open in high boost shifts. The new GFB unit is really nice, well built piece. Put in N20 plugs gapped at .020 and the tune is currently getting tweaked. I plan to redyno once I get my setup dialed in.

Exhaust video I made the other day.

Just acquired my M Performance Big Brake Kit

Honestly they are gorgeous... very happy with the red. And before anyone asks... I went with blank rotors all around because a bunch of people complain about wind noise with the slotted and dimpled rotors. The 370mm look huge. Hopefully stopping power will be increased

I actually have slotted and dimpled with my stock grey brembos (stoptech all around, including lines.) and you don't hear the noise unless your windows are down in a narrow place or tunnel.

Yes that's what a few others have told me... I drive a lot along the highway barriers with my windows down so I rather not have that noise you're describing. As long as it doesn't bother you... I already got the blanks so I will see how they treat me

Have you ran 1/4 yet? Really interested in BM3 but so hard to find people with it and PWG as well. Can you post an acceleration video? And are the hp/tq numbers in your 1st post current with BM3 flashed? Sorry for so many questions
