The numbers are 394Z and 396Z respectivly (Front/Rear). A 3944 pad is the mildest PF street pad for the M3. Not a track pad for sure. Don't confuse it with the Z-rated pad. -Justin -- '76 02 (Whimsical) '97 M3 (Orion) BMW CCA#77056 check out http://users.vei.net/jgerry

I called back today to ensure that I was included in the GP and he included me in the GP for statistical purposes (to try to get to 15) but I had already separately negotiated the price I was paying (as I was buying the two sets). Best of both worlds, cheaper price and I was included in the GP tally! Too bad I will be waiting approximately three weeks to get them :-( Regards, Rich

Apparently they are similar in compound so bedding the pads after swapping becomes a lesser issue. The 90 pads are noisy and they rattle, I think the SO is embarrassed sometimes because of the noise. As for the Z pads, they are really good pads for the street and while they squeal a little when cold, they stop well and doesn't generate a lot of brake dust.

#6. MXX3 strange wear? - from Mdriver13@aol.com

Date: Fri, 8 Jun 2001 17:39:10 EDT From: Mdriver13@aol.com Subject: MXX3 strange wear? Group, In looking at my front tires last weekend, I noticed extreme wear on the inside block of tread for the driver side tire as in excess camber which I do not have. But, even wear on passenger side tire. Both have been on the road for 13,000 miles. Took it to my Dealer, to check alignment done last August. Everything checked out the same. Negative 1.1 camber for both sides, negative 0.08 degrees toe (set this way for autoxing). The worn tire I bought new from TireRack, the passenger side was my spare (in trunk for two years). Size 225/45/17 stock wheels, pressure 32psi cold. Dealer could not explain what is happening, can anyone help solve this mystery. Could it be difference in rubber hardness coupled with the negative toe????? Bob Gill 97 ///M3 coupe Philly Region SCCA AS Champion 1997 & 2000 #13 BSP 2001

WD-40. Yup the stuff has 101 uses and I spray it on the bottom of the car before every race. If I forgot, I just spray it on afterwards, no harm to paint at all. You can use it to remove bugs and tar too. Alex "HyperM3" Demsky 97 SC M3 29k
