Thanks Eric. I have yet to buy anything yet, got my girl's M3 on the road for the season and have been driving that to work. I really would like to get some really nice stuff but I don't want to blow all the money I have been saving. I still need a clutch and uppipe ..

So mabe just get nice fronts and stock rears for now or something... I'm not sure.

Thanks. Yea, they were done. I blame it on the loud exhaust that I could hear them till it was too late. Also the driver front , one of the pistons was seized. I had to break it free and then lubed it up so hopefully it will be better. Or next brake job ill be replacing a caliper..

Also a lot of the issue is.that the car has sat for a long time a few different times. One being almost a year. So the rotors rusted up and I never had them turned or anything. The car has never been running long enough to do any other maintenance besides engine stuff..lol

Picked up the braided lines from Ballistic and the shop next door was having a open house sale. Picked up a oil pressure gauge to replace my cheap sunco one , short shifter, shifter bushings, shift job and a turbo blanket.

I think so too. Pretty successful day . Bill for all of it was $195.

Oil gauge $60
Short shifter $50
Turbo blanket $40
Poly shifter bushings $20
Aluminum shift nob $25

All new accept the short shifter was used.
