Yes, your shoes are gone.

Procedure is the same for 540 (I don't know about M5).
Part Numbers are the same for 540.

1. Brake Rotor 34211164840 is the same as 34216767060 (which is listed for V8). Both of these PNs are the same.

2. Brake Shoes PN is the same.

Check to be sure. You will be happy you do this.

Off topic, but my next project (rear suspension) is on hold because I just sent some 500 bones to Red Cross to help the earth-quake victims in Haiti. I might even go there soon.
