ON THE MATTER OF BRAKES I USED PAGID BLUES AND PAGID GROOVED DICS AGAIN NOT A GOOD TEST AS SPEEDS WERE LOW BUT I AM AT DONNINGTON IN MAY WITH EITHER MY COUPE OR E30 M3....SO I'LL FEED BACK SOME MORE

PS THE COUPE WAS MORE THAN A MATCH IN A STRAIGHT LINE WITH ALL THE CARS THAT DAY INC. PORCHES, EVO 6, TVR,355'S ETC ...

Thanks for the feedback RTB.

The problem in the rain is that many drivers would have been "holding back" & it would have been hard to get a comparison. I'd have thought that the Evo 6 would have had a field-day though....!

I would be interested in your impressions between the M Coupe & the E30 M3.

You might like to bear in mind that it's more usual to post messages in upper/lower case rather than all CAPS. This is a convention on the Internet as a whole. All CAPS is usually taken to mean that you are shouting. http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif
