Shortly after my car purchase, I spotted an ad on M3Post asking for a development car for the Eibach Pro Kit for the E92 BMW M3. The requirements were simple: bright color car, already owns wheels/tires, and preferably in Southern California. I submitted pictures of my car and within 30 minutes got a call from Eric Dickerson @ Eibach. He wanted my car!

Purchasing HRE 540R's was a dream come true. I literally wanted those wheels on my car for more than 10 years. But after seeing them on the car, I didn't actually like them. When the Brembo brakes were installed, I received a blessing-in-disguise because the front wheels were not manufactured correctly, and would need to be replaced -- remanufactured. At that point, I decided that I would try to get the entire set replaced. Here is the story of how those events unfoled.
The Brembo BBK installation became a bit of a problem. Brembo was out of stock on all colors except silver. So we decided to custom paint the calipers. The only question: what color do we paint them. I talked it over with a very good painter friend of mine, and he warned to avoid RED at all costs because it would clash with the color of the car.
