    While you should take that quote above with a huge grain of salt (most of the "beta crew" know fuck-all about anything), it does appear that their V7 is making power over their previous tunes to the order of 20whp or so. It's the first full rewrite of their tuning, and by using HPTuners they've been able to unlock and access new areas to tune (VVT). I've got 82mm throttle bodies incoming, and once I get them on I'll book some dyno time and get a custom tune by EC and see what's going on. I keep crazy records, so should be able to post up some before/after dyno and track numbers that bound to be are better than the "butt dyno" referenced above. I'm pretty tapped out from a NA perspective, and a bit more power would be welcomed.

    I also forgot to mention, if you're running 18" or bigger wheels you can get their "oversized" front rotors. Takes you from oem size of 338x28mm to 350x28mm. This kit includes pads and a small bracket to move the caliper so you can fit the oversized rotors. They are the only company out there offering upgrades like this for us 1er's. That option is still 3-4lbs lighter per corner then oem :) http://www.racingbrake.com/Two-piece-rotor-Open-Slot-135i-Over-sized-Big-p/2232-k.htm

    Yup. You get the whole set front and rear for around $1400 with pads shipped using the gs-10 code. you can buy front BBK used for around 2k. I know it's not the cheapest option for a lot of people out there but it's a great in between. These things can take some serious abuse :)

    Not really, the only other OEM size lightweight 2 PC replacement option are the ECS ones at $500 for JUST rotors no pads. So actually very comparable in price to the other option. The ECS ones ONLY come in drilled/slotted, weigh 1.3lbs more PER side and cannot be rebuilt. They aren't cheap but they aren't overpriced either.

    Probably getting close to 1/3 or 1/2 the cost of a used bbk. Glad you like them.

    Hey guys I decided to pull the trigger on some 2 peice light weight rotors and pads from racing brake. To give you some background I do a lot of 1/2 mile racing and have warped multiple sets of rotors and cracked pads from the high speed stops. Wanted to give some initial testing feedback on the RB OE replacement rotors and high temp XT910 street pads. I did a few consecutive 130mph down to about 40mph hard stops back to back after I bead them in. On the stock 135i rotors this would have warped the rotors and cracked the pads. The RB rotors and pads took it like a champ! No pedal fade no vibrations just a crisp bite at the pedal as I expected. These rotors performed flawlessly through my stress tests and I am confident they will not warp after the next 1/2 mile event.Since the high speed stops I have done 3 separate canyon runs with the new setup, they have performed flawlessly with no squeak and much less brake dust over the oem stuff. the pedal feel is different then stock, you really have to push harder on the pedal when coming in hot which is a little weird to get used to cus the stock pads bite so hard with such little input.... Prob why they warp so easy ha! These rotors are 2 peice so when it's time for replacement you can order the rotor rings by them selves and re use the aluminum hat to cut down on replacement costs. Also these rotors shave 10-12 lbs of rotational weight in the front and another 10lbs if you choose to buy the rears also. To me that is worth it in itself. I purchased a front set first cus I didn't see a ton of independent reviews on the full kit. After about a week with the front rotors and pads I knew I had to have the rears. The look and unsprung weight savings alone is well worth the cost in my book. The front pads retain the OEM brake sensor while the rear pads do not. As far as I know Racing Brake is the ONLY company out there that makes a 2 PC light weight OE replaceable rear rotor for the 135i. You can really feel the difference with these things on all 4 corners! the car feels really light on its feet and feels like it turns in quicker. If you purchase the front and rear rotors/pads together you save also to save some additional money at check out use code GS-10. :music-rockout: Here are some pictures....
