The Porsche brakes if I am not mistaken are Brembos ... so you could just get a set of brembos. I have seen the Porsche brakes on VW's but none on E92's yet. Think they should be compatible.

The key to making BBK's (specifically the caliper) work on an E9x will be the size of the rotor used and you must have custom brackets made for the larger Brembos (or whatever caliper you are switching to).

I had 996 front and rear calipers with BMW euro rotors on my E36 M3. It was a kit we produced and took many hours in design and machining for just the bracket.
