I have just finished up getting my Porsche calipers prepped for powdercoat, and now have all the pieces, except my rear rotors which will be a couple weeks.

I'll add a few quick iPhone pics in a few minutes

Here are the calipers completely disassembled. The fronts and rears appear to be close in size but the piston sizes are much larger on the fronts

Yeah it does...I'm surprised it hasn't been done more on the z4m's it's a great set up...I know a lot of people are skeptical, but it has been extremely thoroughly researched by the m3 guys

Do you have any sound clips of your fabspeed headers/stromung? I've got the Stromung but would like to see how they sound with fabspeed. How was fitment of the fabspeed?

I had a brief one up on the group buy thread, but I lost that one off my old phone. With the weather we have coming, I'm not sure I'll get a chance to do another for a while.

The fitment on the fabspeed is decent, but they hit the subframe brace a bit on my car....nothing a dead-blow hammer won't fix though....they also hang a bit lower than oem headers. With the ar20's in place of the cats there is zero rasp, except when the car is cold. It sounds absolutely fantastic, but I wish it was a bit louder.

Thats great. I'm still trying to figure out which route I'm going to go for headers. What about your Fortune Broadway coilovers. Pretty satisfied with them?

I am extremely satisfied with them, they ride and handle fantastic even being as low as I am. I do however have something suspension wise in mind for later this year, so if you want a good deal on a set with less than 3k miles I may give you that opportunity haha.
