I particularly enjoyed the discussion of the pros, cons, and reasons for drilled, slotted, and vented discs. Carbon fiber is discussed.

I am convinced to stay stock for diminishing returns of the cost / benefit ratio, the cost increasing faster than the benefit. YMMV

The narrative was incredible, I have no idea where to get about 50% of the datum for interactive chart. As BMW charges somewhere around $5k for ceramics, I dont imagine a retro fit is in the cards for this guy. I will follow DHs idea on OEM even at BMW price points.
