Why are the rotors cracked like that?

That's what Ceramic Brake Rotors look like.

My next car. I think I'll pick one up in four years used. As soon as I pay off the 135i. I'll move in to my parents house for 5 years to help open up my budget to allow for this beautiful car.

to M

Pros: Looks, man does this car have the looks in and out. Out of the park this time. It doesn't have the dog nose of the F10, and it's aggressive like the outgoing E9X. CF roof is a design cue we were expecting on the 1 series M coupe, and the F10 M5 and finally got it on our M6.

DCT!!! no more SMG! 'nuff said.

Ceramic brake option (not for track use) is desirable and the Gold caliper will match colors better than the standard blue brakes.

Cons: Power. With the GT500, LS1, Z06, CTS-V, RS5, TT RS, E63,... all out there you would think M would have released the motor with more horsepower. but this is a point made back when the F10 M5 was released. An M6 with a little over 630 hp would have been such a desirable car.


Tuners have at it. This is one badass car. Makes me wonder about the M4/M3. Which unlike many here who say it will have around 450 hp, I feel it will have only 400 but since the nature of turbo charged motors will have a tq figure of around 400 making it well mannered on the streets and faster on the track than the out-going model.
