M4 pads are fast-road pads really, I wouldn't use them on Track myself - unless you're happy with short stints.

I would be up for improving the braking performance on my car. What do you recommend? FYI I will unlikely track my car.

M2 / M4 (Textar) Pads are GF rated, so they'll feel more aggressive at normal temperatures (vs the standard FF rated Jurids). Obviouly at high temp (Track) they'll be no better than stock, but that doesn't apply to you. Guaranteed OEM quality, and BMW stamped, so the least likely to give you any warranty/insurance headaches.

Current formulation Yellowstuff aren't very subtle looking, but tried and tested for fast road use. One chap on here was recommending the GG rated Ceramic Akebono's, but I've not tried those myself.

I had a relatively low mileage 265 Cup in perfect condition for a couple of years before my 130i. I loved it and still think about it a lot! I only moved on from it as I began a new job that meant I was starting to do a lot more mileage and I wanted to experience an NA 6 cylinder before they disappeared.

The handling was incredible; it reacted instantly and there was a lot of grip and no real roll. My 130i feels sluggish and slow to react in comparison.

Here are the photos I used to sell it to K-Tec:

There were a minimum of thirty Renaults driving through my home area today so obviously a club or forum meet. Looked quite impressive.
