hey everyone . i have had my car almost a year and just recently did some perf upgrades . i have been doing lots of research before i started and have really noticed that alot of guys buy these super high end parts . i built my own cold air intake and heat sheild and it turned out great , cost 40$ . i replaced my rotors with cross drilled zimmermans with perf brakes cost 400$ . headers and remus cat back exhaust 600$ . m50 intake swap 170 including making my own kit . sachs clutch and fidanza light weight flywheel 800$ . i can do everything myself so labour is my own time . i understand there are the guys out there that love buying dinan etc but for all u guys out there that want to do stuff and not break the bank try what i did my car runs amazing and is alot faster than stock but still is a great daily driver . bye for now all u bimmer nuts lol p.s. that adds up to 1840$ cnd alot of guys are just getting a clutch installed for that much cash

:rofl: Right, because the cross-drilled rotors you can buy are of the same quality as the ones on race cars.

Have fun with your new cracked rotors!

Sorry. Didn't mean to be a d!ck, but definitely don't want you to waste money on parts that aren't going to help you.
