Thanks Rocky, I'm home for the holidays now. Will be bringing the family over after the New Year but for now t's good to be back in the US of A!
I'm really happy for you and you're entire family, Marty. Happy Holidays to you and yours, my friend

Yeah, good point. The car weighs 160lbs less than the Mustang and has 15 front and 14.5 rear rotors. Mustang had 14 front and 11.8 rears. Even with GT500 rear brakes they were 13.8

but it I would argue that the Beemer brakes are designed for Autobahn and track speeds. At 165mph Ill take all the stopping power and fade resistance I can get.
