    I have met some of you lot on track days so I thought I would share my build with you, I bought the M3 with smg none sunroof coupe 2 years ago standard, after selling a M3 csl, I took the standard suspension off and put csl suspension on which was a little bit lower and a bit stiffer, ate super blue next with braided hoses ebc yellow stuff pads all round, wheels next sold the standard wheels then put some genuine csl wheels on with new cup tyres all round this has done me for the last 2 years, now the car is not up to my improved driving skills, to much roll in the car and wearing tyres out on the outer edge, killing brakes pads and discs , I have manage to get hold of some APs front and rear, they came with nearly new discs front and rear + nearly new RS29 yellows all round, intax next what a bit of kit these are, they came with the turner motorsport strengthening top plates, next is the turner motorsport stud kit these are the long ones so can take up to 20ml wheel spacers, so over the last 3 weekends I have been busy fitting this lot, pictures to follow with more up dates, regards John

    Hi John, I met you at Bedford - I had the other stock carbon black M3 running Cups back in May I think it was. I had reached the limit/enjoyment factor tracking a stock setup car so I have just fitted Intrax IK2 and oem 18" square setup running Cup2s all round - ready for the Ring in a week or so.

    Aesthetically Intrax look amazing on the car and initial testing on back roads indicate its a completely different car to drive.

    I do remember you saying to me that APs weren't worth the money :)

    I do remember but thing change, when I done Bedford in May I done snetterton on the following Monday night and got out braked by a CSL which had the APs, I knew how good the APs were as I had them on my CSL, it was more of the cost of pads and discs that use to piss me off but now my skills have improved I will get the benfit from them now, so I am telling you now they are worth every penny :thumbsup:

    Ap's and intrax will go along way to sorting things out, make sure all bushes especially rta's are good, all depends how you drive and how far you want to go, as your car is such a nice example see how you get on with those mods first,
