What are you looking for from the braking? Light track? Street only?

Street- I do some aggressive braking from time to time- thought about
Zimmerman Z Coated Cross drilled rot
And Hawk HPS pads- what do you think?

im no track expert at all here but ive seen drilled rotors get warped faster heck even crack
my e39 even came with drilled Zimmerman rotors and have slight warp after 5 months of street use
id recommend slotted rotors just my o2

Hey Killam, looks like the flipping tranny is going to shit on me.. What would the cost be to go from Auto to Manual? Parts and everything.. Do you know anybody that knows how to do it, and help me with the wrench time?
