This is probably so obvious that you missed it, but how about from Porterfield? :-) Go to: http://www.porterfield-brakes.com/. Their phone numbers are listed, give 'em a call. Mention you are on the E36 M3 List, and they'll give you a 20% (IIRC) discount. I buy my PF90s (now PF97s) from them all the time. Cheers, Jim Bassett 1998 M3/4

#5. Hawk Blue compound change - from James Clay

Date: Thu, 7 Jun 2001 16:06:37 -0400 From: "James Clay" <james@bimmerworld.com> Subject: Hawk Blue compound change Hawk has changed the compound, at the end of the 80's. However, they apparently had a huge surplus of some pads because the older pads (identified with a "burnished" stamp on the backing plate) still show up for sale at times. Hawk pads, as well as other full race pads do require proper care after use - take the car home and wash it and the wheels thoroughly. However, they aren't nearly as destructive as the old material.

Based on some of the responses I've seen, most of us on this list are not familiar with your racing prowess and other track-oriented involvement. Since I am quite confident in your braking technique, you need to focus on two things: pads and ducting. Hi-temp track pads may cure the problem. If you are already using a high-temp pad, then a brake duct kit is probably in order. An internet search should turn over more than enough stones. If not, let me know and I will check my files and provide you with some leads for brake ducting. >"Date: Wed, 06 Jun 2001 21:45:52 -0400 >From: Rick Pocock <Rick@DovetailRacing.com> >Subject: Brake Rotors > >The issue is warped brake rotors on my '98 M3/4.

#9. tires and warranties - from John Demartino US-Valencia

Date: Thu, 7 Jun 2001 22:51:08 +0200 From: John Demartino US-Valencia <j.demartino@us.qiagen.com> Subject: tires and warranties Hi All, A few questions... Tires: Anyone tried the new SO3 pole positions? I am interested specifically in how they compare to the Pilot Sports... Warranty: My lease on a '99 M3 is ending and I have the opportunity to have the car certified for a 6yr/100k warranty. The cost will be $1,695 assuming they do not find anything wrong with the car. Since the car is still under the original 3/36 warranty and the fact that it is meticulously maintained, I cannot imagine they could find anything it needs. Any tips/warnings about the CPO inspections process. Is $1,695 a good value for the warranty? Any bad experiences with a BMW CPO warranty? Thanks, John John DeMartino QIAGEN Inc. Product Manager Large Scale Plasmid/UP100/Cloning Phone: 800-426-8157, ext. 23507 Fax: 661-702-3652 j.demartino@us.qiagen.com www.qiagen.com QIAGEN. Dedicated to Your Success.

#10. JTD RSM bushing beware - from Junaidi Irwan
Top
Date: 7 Jun 2001 16:39:40 CDT From: Junaidi Irwan <junaidi.irwan@usa.net> Subject: JTD RSM bushing beware Fellow bimmerheads, Just wanna let those of you who have JTD RSM installed in your car know that beware of those Blue/Softer bushings. If you have those installed in your car, check and make sure they are still intact. I just replaced those blue bushings with the black,the more solid bushings. The reason is because yesterday I heard rattling noise coming from the rear of my car. Then I checked and found out that the blue bushings are torn off. Here is the picture of the blue bushings: http://mediaservice.photoisland.com/auction/Jun/2001673841798058615664.jpg I am not sure if this thing is not gonna happen in the future, however I hope with the more solid bushings, this won't happen again, or else, I am gonna try the E46 M3 convertible ones. Good luck! Jay 95 M3 with black solid JTD bushings. ____________________________________________________________________ Get free email and a permanent address at http://www.amexmail.com/?A=1

#12. brake rotors - from Junaidi Irwan
Top
Date: 7 Jun 2001 16:42:18 CDT From: Junaidi Irwan <junaidi.irwan@usa.net> Subject: brake rotors Bimmerheads, With all these talks about rotor, I have a question regarding the rotors. If I were about to change the rotors and the brake pads are still okay, do I need to replace both of them at the same time or can I get away with just replacing the rotors? Thanks, Jay *** Junaidi W Irwan *** Junaidi.Irwan@usa.net cuwei@hotmail.com ____________________________________________________________________ Get free email and a permanent address at http://www.amexmail.com/?A=1

#13. Importing a Euro E46 M3... - from Steve Walsh
Top
Date: Thu, 07 Jun 2001 14:52:40 -0700 From: Steve Walsh <stevewalsh@earthlink.net> Subject: Importing a Euro E46 M3... This is an interesting question. As opposed to the E36, the E46 is supposed to be a 'World car'. So that might eliminate the crash-test hurdle, which was the big one for the Euro E36 import. Now there will still be little things that might need changing, like headlights (DOT standards might have changed, 'cause I don't see the little alignment nipples on most cars these days). The other big gotcha would be service. Unless you have a good buddy at a dealership, I don't think you'll get much in the way of warranty service ! How 'bout a group buy ...:)
