M5 Brake Conversion on a 535 XDrive Model

Like the title mention. Has anyone done it on a 535 XDrive model? I know you have to get a brake mount adapter but does it require anything else for the xDrive model?? I'm looking to do this over the summer so I'm sorting all the parts needed for the job.

Thank you for any input!

I will be doing this conversion soon. From what I was told and read around all you need is custom caliper adapters.

Yeah but it depends on your offset. You could probably make it work with spacers. I already have 20" on spacers so I know I will be able to clear the brake calipers for sure.
