    Big brembo brakes for the e63 m6

    I remember from my Z3M days that I installed a set of big Brembos from a Porsche on my Z3M. I know that the E63 M6 rotors are 380 X 34 mm front, 380 X 28 mm rear. There must be hundreds of Cayennes and Panameras on junkyards with these Brembo brakes waiting for scavengers. How about our racing community,,, any comments ??

    PS: Something's wrong here !! I'm posting almost as much as Turner Motorsports, and they are vendors !

    I see a big mistake on my previous post: the oem brakes are 374 X 34 front, 370 X 24 rears. The 380 mm are for the Brembo GT kits.
    Well, if I could get some answers, just a few...I know for a fact that Brembo does not make different calipers for each car out there with their brakes on. They have a few models that they use on many ,many different cars. 4-6-8 piston monoblocks for the street, they come in M, N, G models, they come with different size pistons depending on the application. But, they only make a limited amount of different calipers. Brembo sold many GT brake kits for the E60-E63 models. Can we share that information? What is the code number on the caliper?
    There's an Audi Q7 that has 14.8 in front rotors and Brembo calipers. The E63 is 14.7. What is the model number on that caliper?
    The Mercedes Benz CLS AMG has 380 mm front rotors with 8 piston calipers. Has anybody tried to see if they fit?
    On the M5Forums I was given directions on how to Google $10,000 brake sets. I must agree with Sundaycruzer on his post.

    I believe itís 06 and newer srt8 jeeps and cars. Iíve used them on custom builds. But the mount looks similar e60. Front only FYI, I havenít looked at rear. The newer ones might even be a better fit.

    Well, we're getting somewhere. Today one of my coworkers saw a stranger (me) paying real close attention to her Grand Cherokee I'm almost sure they were monoblock 6 piston calipers. Didn't get a good chance to check out the rears in detail. My question is: what is the front rotor diameter on a Grand Cherokee with Brembos? Do they come in different sizes? I tried looking it up, thousands of ads, not a single one stated rotor diameter.
    The next question will be: what about the rears?
    For what it matters, I bought a set of Brembo caliper brackets specific for the E60-63 model, front and rear. . If I can get the correct caliper size, I can have a local machine shop (or any forum member with the capabilities) manufacture a batch of these, offer them to the E60-63 members, tell them what calipers to buy off the Internet. Just to get some interest brewing.
