I'll be sorry? F@#k that, I love doin that shit and if I can help out a fellow max member it's all the better.

2 calipers on one rotor? its easy I would just machine an adaptor to bolt to the stock caliper mounting bolts and spreads out to be able to mount the 2 calipers.

-Wheels... 17x8.5 215 45 17's The tires arent that wide because the rims have a serious offset and the wider tires rubbed on my beater (92 318i)

Yeah, I've been there, I got a lot of that when I was your age but my friends started realizing that it was starting to piss me off so they stopped asking me to fix there shit. I still help out 1 or 2 of my very best friends and they hook me up in return, but I just tell everyone else that I'm busy....

willwood make good pads?!?!
need ones that DO NOT SQUEEK (main point) and that have long lasting good stoping capabilities, and why do the M rotors look HUGE?!?!
i thought it was a BIG brake kit, and what else do you need to fit M3 rotors onto a non M car?!
Thanks man, i REALLY appreciate the help you've been so far, its too much already!

-Willwood has about 10 different compounds for pads depending on what kind of driving you need it for www.wilwood.com . As for squeaks, you should use break quiet, its a sticky gooy silicone that you put on the back of the pads and glues to the pistons to keep the pads from rattling(which causes the squeaking).

-The ///M rotors bolt right on but you need a caliper with a wider mouth for the thicker rotor and a bracket to mount the caliper.

-Why do the ///M rotors look huge? Because their ///M rotors...
