Budget Big Brake Conversion Question

I searched the forum and nothing about putting Brembos on the e60.
On LS 4th gen Camaros you can adapt CTS-V front Brembos with very little work.
ECSTuning sells a 6 piston kit for the E39 that utilizes newer 1M calipers. Yet nothing for the E60?
Are those calipers not ideal because they're not designed for the weight of a sedan? Yet the e60 was lighter than the e39 and those kits work for them.
Im left wondering if its a rotor issue, do our rotors have weird specs?
