      i cant really help you too much, other than to say that i am under 20 years old and AAA had no problem covering me in my M3. In fact the M3 was cheaper for me to insure than most of the other cars i was looking at buying, even though the M3 was the fastest and most powerfull.

        Some periods or commas will help break apart your post so we can read it easier. I am not 100% on the brakes either maybe or check the links page at the top for different vendors. But I am 21 and have no issues with insurance and it isn't over the top. Its through State Farm. Other then that good luck w/ finding your parts.

          I'm 22 and have no problems with insurance either. Then again i've miraculously managed to stay ticket and wreck free, and I also see you're at 2.5L displacement, which may or may not be a big deal if you told them about it. Typically the insurance companies don't worry about the ol' e30 m3 because it's a naturally aspirated four cylinder.
          As far as brakes...don't know what you need but I just replaced pads and rotors all around for $320 buy-it-now from FCP Groton on ebay. Pads were PBR (Axxis) Ultimate Ceramic and rotors were Zimmerman cross-drilled (similar to Turner's package). It's not a bad deal for a slight upgrade, but I wouldn't get cross-drilled if you plan on tracking it. I don't track mine so this set-up will work fine for street, and I can't stand that glorious bmw black brake dust so I had to get ceramic. As far as online parts stores go you might check out Autohausaz. They've got a fairly wide selection of pads but only the BALO rotors..usually pretty competitive pricing, but I haven't checked other vendors.
