BMW M5 to F10 DIY Brembo Brake conversion

Starting a new Thread as other ones have been hijacked. I will use this thread for a single point to obtain part numbers and DIY once I install on car. Will create a step by step DIY for anyone to follow. Please do not post other options in this thread. This is designed for a person to go to www.getbmwparts.com, Obtain OEM BMW parts, purchase Caliper adapters, and then do the install:

My research has shown:

All parts available from www.getbmwparts.com Ask for Jason

Front Brakes:
Left Caliper 34117845747
Right Caliper 34117845748
Left Rotor 34112284101
Right Rotor 34112284102 Pads set 34112284869
Brake hoses 34322284318 each (2 needed, one per side)
Custom Caliper Bracket


Rear:
Rear caliper left 34217845815
Rear caliper right 34217845816
Rear pads set 34212284389
Rear brake lines 34322284319 each x 2
Left Rotor 34212284103
Right Rotor 34212284104 Rear Custom Caliper Mount


MUST have at least 20 inch rims for Rotor clearance...

Install, bleed and drive. HIGHLY suggested you do front and back at same time to eliminate issues with ABS.

Now, the only thing to consider is the Electronic Parking brake on the rear, which I need to find out is adaptable to new M5 Rotors and Calipers.

https://www.drive2.ru/l/5698330/

https://www.drive2.ru/o/b/2498650/

Will post pics of adapters once they arrive and will build a DIY document on the install.

I personally wouldn't touch the rear, they look exactly the same as my 550i, save some money.

While I'm not sure if the 550i one will work with the brakes, parts wise, the M5 does have a different Master Cylinder than the 550 (34336799903 vs 34336796729 respectively). Interestingly enough, the M5 master cylinder is used on the M5, M6, and the 640 and 650, but not the 550.

That's great news! I wonder if the same is true for the rear brakes.

Did you figure out if the rear brake modification will have any influence on the EM brake? I think if it does have the problem, the best we can do is to get a pair of Brembo sport drilled/slotted rotors and paint or not paint the rear calipers. Just to have a better look...

Electronic parking brake should be no issue. Talking to Brembo directly in the next few days and speaking to an engineer.

Ok, getting ALL the rest of the parts NOW. Getting the calipers Repainted as it seems the BMW Blue paint job SUCKS and chips off very easily. So going to paint OEM M5 Blue and then have severlal layers of clear coat on top of the blue. Will keep all informed.

The quality of the gentleman in Russia for work is AMAZING! 440.00 SHIPPED? THAT IS CRAZY GOOD PRICING and about 2 weeks to get in.

I will have a set of ///M Custom Carbon fiber caliper covers for sale after I put these brakes on. Paid over 400 for them, but makes your car LOOK like you have Caron fiber calipers on it.

Both. Bought a new set of front rotors and then a whole set as they came as all or nothing. So I have a duplicate set of front calipers now.

My custom paint guys are going to spray them with oem blue, going to paint center hubs blue and then paint the ///M raised lettering on the center hub as a little extra touch. Also putting a few layers of clear coat on everything as the oem bmw paint, chips way too easily.

SO... There will be a beautiful set of front calipers for sale from me shortly. Lol.

All of my research points to the M5 and f10 using an interchangeable master cylinder. The caliper adapters from Russia are TOP NOTCH and at 440.00 for a front and rear set, a real deal. He even includes the bolts. Torque Specs on Caliper adapter bracket: М12-1.75 torque 115 Nm (~80 ft lbs),


Brembo does NOT MAKE A F10 retrofit kit for the our cars. I spoke to their engineers directly. That means all these kits you see online for brembo f10 calipers are someone taking either m5 calipers or GT calipers, custom making the bracket adapter and making a 4 thousand dollar profit!!! Not one of those kits states a new master cylinder is needed. Even DINAN makes a brembo brake kit for the f10. So.... Where are all of these calipers coming from??? My opinion is they are m5 calipers, repainted, new adapter bracket and then sold at crazy profit.... We will see....

From what I am told by BMW in Maryland, you can do it either way. Several members have said they are identical rear brakes. Since I had the rear set off, figured I would have them painted to match and be protected.
