If you can beat the ECS tuning price with similar or better performance. I'm in. But I would like a four wheel upgrade, not just the fronts. I once saw an E39 with M6 brakes...looked real good.

Edit: Looks like ECS does NOT make a BMW BBK for the v8. Plus its only 338mm as compared to the StopTech/Brembo sized of 355mm up front.
