Hey man, very pleased with the brake pads; 100 miles and wheels still look clean. I could barely travel 5-10 miles on the OEM pads w/o having a good amount of dust.

Pads are very quiet as well with zero squealing; the brakes bite hard on braking with zero fading.

I hope this helps.

Great to hear.

Do you mind to share the brand and where you get it from?
Guys in here would kill for those information, even my local customers.

iPE Catback Valved Exhaust with 102mm CF Tips - Installed earlier this week. Below are some pix and I'll get some audio in the week ahead. Very happy with decision to go w/ iPE.

I've received a ton of PM's regarding the ACG Carbon Kevlar Pads I installed earlier this week.

It's been 5 days and brake dust and noise / squeal are no longer an issue; performance is great as well w/plenty of bite and zero fade. Barely a trace of any brake dust after 5 days and wheels looked really good today right before a wash.

Very pleased w/ my decision to purchase these pads.

This is awesome! Are there any complications with warranty or insurance coverage by doing this?

I love the carbon fiber theme on the lower back of the car... It ties in nicely!

How's the fitment of the tips since they're 102mm? Hard to tell from this pic, but do they touch the bumper at all?

Thanks Ryan.

Fitment's great with plenty of space; does not touch the bumper at all. Very similiar look and feel to the Akra tips on my F10 M5's.

Sounds deep and throaty with a bit more growl than the Akra. Sounds very good.

Quick Build Update ....

ACG Carbon Kevlar Pads - On about 3 weeks and zero noise and minimal dust.

iPE Catback Exhaust - Just keeps getting better and better with time; much deeper and throatier than M Sport Exhaust but not over the top. Love the valve control functionality and the ability to go aggressive, moderate or very quiet as you wish. This system seems to fly a bit under the radar but I find it every bit as good as the Akras on my F10 M5's with a less hefty price tag. I'll post up some videos this coming weekend.

Mode Carbon High Kick Spoiler - Had that installed last week (some pix); much love to the Velos Crew.

Updated OP.

Thanks Ryan. Mode Carbon quality is top notch and goes exceptionally well with the M-Performance Diffuser. Fitment was top notch as well. Kudos to Sam and Co. at Mode Carbon.
