The real big question is, would you want the best brakes possible? Frankly, I would. I don't screw around when it comes to brakes. Its the first thing I do when I work on a car. They (and your tires) are the only things that stop your car. To me, its more of a safety issue. Plus, I feel the E30 M3 brakes are not up to snuff. Even running Evo rotors, brake ducting, stainless lines, and racing pads (when warmed up), I don't feel that there is enough stopping power for the track. For the street (supstitute autocross pads) and the brakes are decent, but not inspiring.
Before you go to the track, install brake ducting (it really helps), and bring an extra set of pads!


Just my opinions....

That sounds like great advice. I guess I got a bit overexcited! I'm away for xmas, but as soon as I'm back I'll book a track day and work from there. Thanks everyone!!!
