+1 Couldn't agree more. I like to drive my car, not have to rock it over every little bump in the road.

Love what you've done to the car mate, I've been eyeing off some of those e90 rims for a bit. Do you mind letting me know where you got the blackline LCI LED tail-lights? I have the LCI low ones, without the LEDs. Interested in trading up, keen to know how much you got them for.

Cheers!

Yeah those headlights do look sweet with the E87 M Sport kit. Just that the cost of the headlight units make me cringe especially when I've got suspension upgrades, LSD and possibly 135i/BMWP brakes on the agenda

I find after a track day it usually takes 2-3 days of city driving to get rid of all the brake resin and deposits off so pedal feel doesn't come back until then. I'd recommend a brake bleed before and after a track day either way, it should become part of your track setup routine.

Braided brake lines I wouldn't bother, better pads and fluid definitely.
Also a 4 point harness is a must if you want to do more track days, it's amazing how it'll hold you in and let you focus on the driving. Revolution RaceGear has them. In my wrx I replaced the seatbelt bolts with eye bolts and clipped the harness into them, it was the common way to do it. I'd assume you could do similar on the 130i. I need to do the same for the 1M.

Keep up the updates.
Thanks for the tips Smiley! Brake service is first on my to do list when I get back to Melbourne. Still have to do some research on what pads I'll be using so if anyone has suggestions, I'm all ears!
