Fit E63 M6 brakes on my E65 745

FYI, the M6/M5 brakes fit on the E65. Great news! pics to follow this evening.

On a side note, I have the entire brake setup from a 2003 E65 745i that I am now going to sell. Brake calipers, brackets, pins, bolts, rotors & pads. The rotors have 6,000-miles on them & the pads are brand new (a week old). Looking for $600-shipped for these.

thanks!

How much larger are the brakes on an M5/M6 vs our factory brakes? Any pictures? Did they just bolt up or did you have to change parts like the lines, knuckles, etc?

The M6 brakes are 15.0" at all four, as opposed to 13.7"

Here you go guys...




I modified the brackets & machined the center bores by 3.2mm. It fit great.

Here are my other cars by the way. I am ususally on M5BOARD.

When you did this, can you elaborate a bit on this part : "I modified the brackets"....

I know we discussed the center bores of the brake hats offline, but what was needed for the brackets?
