    As long as someone doesn't stick some C4 to it, I think you're good.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    I had arrived at Charlie's place to test fit rotors. I left with damn near $1200 worth of rotors packed into my car without having spent a dime.

    That's right. This guy gave me a full set of M3 euro rotors (cast drilled, semi-floating), with new rears and newish fronts, plus an extra set of used fronts, for nothing. I am completely floored. While it doesn't prevent me from having to buy a full set at some date in the future, this will most certainly hold me over until at least the end of next year, probably into the year after that! Because of Charlie's awesome generosity, I can roll in my "FCP-Never-Buy-This-Shit-Again" plan piece by piece over the next couple of years while I work on wearing these out!

    So did I install 'em yet? You bet your sweet Aspercreme I did. It may have been 90 degrees and humid with a fan going, but at least I had a lift to crank right through!

    I rode in Botondís ZHP this evening and can say his brakes really do grab once he applies his brakes. I mean they really do bite and grab hold... I was impressed...
