This build is still one of my favorites! Can't get that liquid orange paint out of my head. Do you have any plans to add a full exhaust or turbo upgrades after the show?

I have a stupid question... Why on earth did you guys go with a Brembo kit on this car? I just don't understand spending that much when you could have spent a little more and had the factory carbon ceramics... I just don't get it?

Very simple: wheel fitment and options. With the 380mm Brembos I can run 18s for track and a ton of different 19 inch wheels for the street.

The CCBs have a huge caliper that limits the wheels you can run and MOST 19s do not clear the CCB caliper. That is why most CCB cars are running 20 inch wheels, as most smaller diameters simply don't fit.

Hope this helps.

Well color me stupid. That thought never crossed my mind. Have you noticed a lot of improvement with your setup over the standard steel rotor factory brembos? Though since you upgraded rather quickly you probably didn't get much time or any track time on the factory setup...

Yes it is a night and day difference, the pedal feel is more crisp and the performance (especially scrubbing high speed) is incredible.

The pad surface area and pad contact area on the rotors is much larger in comparison to the OEM pads and rotors.

Our M4 is set up in the BC Racing booth number 21631 at the SEMA Show, but here are a few shots we got overlooking Las Vegas before the event.

WOW. Waaaaaay better wheel setup!

I can't wait for new lips to be made that don't require the front splitters but have the same look of the lower part of the M performance lip.

Here is a cool shot from our cross country trip - we just pulled the car out of the garage after some snow flurries in Denver, CO.

Not as of yet. I may run a larger wing for Track use only, but I personally do not care for the BMW M Performance wing for M4.
