First Look! Eibach Lowered E92 M3

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!

My decision to replace the HRE 540R's with HRE P40's

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.

Brembo Big Brake Kit pictures

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.
