Thanks BMW

Finally you've come to your senses and made the calipers on next gen M nicer. I can't stand the fact that you're paying 70K+ on previous M cars and you don't even get nice brake calipers.

Anyway, good job BMW!

Yes, thanks for taking something that was pedestrian yet worked, like my M Coupe brakes, and changing to sub par multi piston brakes like my 135i has. Yeah! Oh, I mean boo!!!

Look into sub standard performance from the 135i six piston brakes (notice the 1M didn't use them) and the 370Z, STi and Evo brakes. M cars have done fine for years with one piston sliders, I'd guess that the F80 won't post as short of distances as an E9x M car, provided they're both wearing the same tires.
