The day started out so well... I'm heading to Thunderhill in a couple of weeks for my first HPDE in my new-to-me Z4MC. Pads and rotors were at about 50% so I sucked it up and shelled out for new pads and rotors all around. (Overly cautious?) Jacked up the rear, pulled the wheels, realized I didn't have the damn stubby 7mm hex driver. Ummm, won't be changing the rears today. Oh well, at least I can flush the brake fluid while I'm back here. Hook up my Motive pressure bleeder, start screwing on the cap... boink! the hose breaks. Sigh. I guess I won't be flushing the brake fluid today. Accidentally knock the brake fluid reservoir cap into the engine bay. It doesn't come out the bottom. Search and search, it has vanished. Suddenly all those cool under-body aero panels don't seem quite so cool. Put the rears wheels back on, move to the front. My Lincoln jack won't reach the center jack point so I pull out my Rhino ramps. Whoops, my ramps are too steep for the coupe. OK, jack from the side, put a jack stand under the front suspension bushing and finally make some progress. Swapping out the front pads & rotors was uneventful. Time to bed new pads. Back the car down the driveway, forget to pump the brakes ahead of time, almost hit my wife's Mini. Find a quiet stretch of road. First 5 - 6 stops (60 to 10 mph) felt like my rotors were greased, couldn't even get the ABS to engage. Had me worried. But by the 10th I was getting some bite and after about 20 stops they were finally feeling really solid. Success, except I'm feeling nauseous from all the stopping and brake fumes. I get to do it all over again after I do the rear brakes. Any recommendations for ramps? Jack? Now on to my tire question: The coupe currently has Michelin Pilot Sport PS2's. Rears are done, but fronts still have >50% tread. Should I: 1) replace all four with the Super Sports, 2) replace just the rears with the Super Sports (fronts to follow soon enough, no doubt), or 3) replace the rears with another set of PS2's ($60 more than the Super Sports at Tirerack)? Oh yeah, after all this, watch the Giants win the World Series. Makes up for everything! It just doesn't get any better!
