    Hat off to your local knowledge Bill, as some of them bends would have probably left me high and dry. Following a local is allways easier than leading, I was able to shorten my braking distance on most bends seeing where you braked. Made it more comfortable me being a stranger on that great route. Pace was a little on the quick side for my first outing behind you though:facepalm:. However your forgiven.=))

    Roy.:happy:

    Need bigger brakes Bill then maybe could get a bit closer to you in the twisty stuff. Hat off to my Z since the 330i intake swap and the Koni sport sus.Owned it for 10yrs next month and it's never let me down even though it gets caned most days,must have been a good one from the factory. Still filthy dirty in my lockup.

    Bill I've spent the money for my brake upgrade so many times in the past I'll have to wait for someone to leave me a inheritance. Any way what's the point in doing 30ltr brakes, it might just get me a few yards closer when I really need to overtake.=))=))=))........................(.blower.)
