Dam, they are nice. You made me think about this now, but $$$ is an issue now. I'm getting the M-Performance suspension on friday. Like $2500 out of the door.

Why not aftermarket suspension?

Mmm. I like to keep everything under warranty as I have CPO till 2021. The other cheaper options are dinan and H&R springs but dont want it to low. The other option full aftermarket ones are in the same 2k -3k price and no warranty. MPS has good reviews on the forum. I kind of like all MP parts. I have MPPK, MPE, MP door sills, MP side decal, now MPS, then loking for the MP brakes and MP front lip but not sure in that one how will look on G-Silver.

That's exactly why I didn't get mine painted. Why show off those puny little brakes back there? lol

Dealer just called and said they're done, but I can't pick it up until tomorrow because of work.

You think it'd look weird if I painted just the front?

Well, another option that is available for us is to get just the rear caliper + the rotor as the current one wont fit. Then just paint the front and add the m logo. What do you think?

Front calipers are the same as the blue one and MP ones. But not the rotor of course. With the blue one you get the 370mm rotor non drilled and with the MP you get 370mm rotor drilled. With the gray one that we have is 340mm rotors. Rear one are the same for both "blue and MP 345mm rotor" and we use the crapy gray caliper with 330mm rotor. Correct me if I'm wrong.

It will look amazing on glacier silver... Trust me...

Can't wait to see the brakes... I have Pheonix yellow on the way b/c the deal was too good to pass up on... Going to find a local shop to powder coat them red.

Short of a quality coilover system such as Ohlins, AST, etc., BMW's M Performance Suspension is the best bang for the buck. I wouldn't even bother spending money on some driveway mechanic mixed setup. There's a decent thread document H&R/Bilstein fail.

Also, if you use your car as a daily driver, you'll have to rebuild your coilovers from time to time which means downtime.
