If I'm going to updgrade the suspension, engine and interior, then I sure as **** want to get the best out of my brakes.

BTW...brakes that are "adequate" at 230hp are less so at 330hp (supercharger) and, if that LSX Swap ever happens, even less so at 400,500 or 600 hp (Maybe I'm day-dreaming there).

Like I said...Similar options exist for E36's and E46's. I just want the same option for the E39.
