their is a guy that did his brakes on a bimmer message board in singapore. but he did his homework. all biasing, piston size, rotor size everything and he put it up on a spreadsheet. everything based on the flow rate of the oem brake pump. he ended up using a 4 piston brembo front with a 4 piston porsche brembo rear off of a 996.

yes, as most vendors here will tell it is dangerous, but not impossible. its fucking ridiculous the markup they try and slap on there just for a BBK.


E55 AMG brakes are the perfect example. 8 piston monoblock fronts and a 4 piston rear. the same fucking shit you get from **********s or Jlevi. ONly difference is they give you the rotors and brackets. and all 4 calipers can be had for under $1200.
