Ha! I've had two A4s and one RS6. I've had two BMW 2002s and am on my second M3. Love BMWs and hate BMWNA. My BMW dealers have been great. My Audi dealers have been mediocre except for Carousel...

My DCT lag rant

Mods, I'm sorry for cross posting, but I'm so pissed at BMWNA, I want everyone to know. I'll understand if you delete the thread if it breaks the forum rules.

I've waited 18 months for BMW to fix...

I haven't cleaned it, yet. 4 winter months on it, and it needs cleaning bad. It's actually discolored by my Levis. I tried a little Lexol pH and a damp microfiber on a patch. Cleaned up perfectly.

For what it's worth, that sounds like a great color combination. I went the boring route with AW and Bamboo. Brown leather is the best. I wish it was available for the M3.

TLudwig is spot on in his post. It is highly unlikely that you warped the rotors and very likely that you have pad deposits.

Just my 2 cents worth, but I think this problem you are describing is due to the soft rubber bushings in the tension rods in the front suspension. Replace with the M3 tension rod bushings and it...

Jeeze, Paul.

You "KNOW" they aren't better brakes. They just look prettier. Let's not go there, now. I have no problem with you picking a C63 over an M3. Every one has their unique criteria...
