F10 M5 Brakes on 528/535/550 ???

Just wondering about this. Its been confirmed that the OE brakes on the new F10 M5 is made by Brembo. Has anyone overseas tried retrofitting this onto a non-M car? If it fits, this could be a more cost effective way to get better braking out of the normal F10's since average Brembo BBK is going to run you around $4K while the M5 setup is about $2700 for pads, rotors and calipers.





Here's a quote i got from Tischer Bmw for the non ceramic M5 brakes

Left Caliper 34117845747 $767.66

Right Caliper 34117845748 $767.66

Left Rotor 34112284101 $394.57

Right Rotor 34112284102 $394.57

Pads 34112284369 $346.10

Dayum! Good work..
Those look so good up close.. my brakes are squeaking like hell this may be a viable option
If only somehow there was a way to borrow the rotor and see if it fit on our car..

If the front fits, hopefully the rear also fits and you won't lose the electronic parking brakes. It is better to get the whole set to maintain the brake balance.

I highly doubt that the calipers and rotors are a direct bolt on to a non-M5 car. I can almost guarantee that there would be several other parts needed.

Longtrany from LTBMW already did this, hit him up for the details. I believe he has a thread titled wife's 535.

yeah i created this thread before LTBMW started his.

Looks like we will need custom caliper brackets for this to work according to LT.

Simply, yes! But the wheels can be an issue too, see Long's thread.
