I am already maxed out on the mods I can do, other than brakes, without the risk of voiding my warranty. Thanks for sharing the pricing.

Next mod on deck for me????.....REDS!!!
You go, DD, the cool factor of the "red" is high, and it makes the car look special because so few like it are around.
A couple of issues related to the M Performance Brakes I have observed so far:
(1) There seems to be a bit more pad dust on the wheels now, compared to the "blue" brake pads. The BMW shop foreman told me that both brake systems used the same pad, so I do not quite understand what's going on with that.
(2) Oh yes, some (dry) brake squeal is present, perhaps lasting 2 seconds just before the vehicle comes to a full stop, with gentle brake application. When I had the "blue" brakes on the car, they were absolutely silent.

If you really want to be crazy, how about the gold color ceramic brakes? Just being silly.
