This should make most people's decision easier.
Im with ya on the wording, they are 6Piston Brembo made for the Cayenne, I kinda did a poll and most people said keep it rather than powder coating over, its still German and most people believe porsche is an upgrade from BMW at least its still German though, I would have had a hard time putting CTSV brakes on thats for sure! ECS had a blowout sell last Christmas and for the price I couldn't pass up otherwise I more than likely I would have gone with Stoptech/Wilwood
No modification, the kit came with the bracket and steel lines for the price I couldn't pass up, Just need 19" wheels to clear the massive rotor!
Interesting, so they require a bracket instead of being milled? I think I've seen threads on this before, I'll have to take a look.
The Porsche calipers are radial mount (perpendicular to the factory mounts) as are most aftermarket calipers, so the typical setup with a caliper and carrier. Only since manufacturers are getting cheap have these gone to more direct bolt on fitment. One less part, that much less cost for the manufacturer, also more rigidity.
Would Fab-Factory be able to do a custom fit of the F10 M5 6 Piston Caliper ? I had in mind originally this kit from ECS for my E89 Z4 https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-parts/front-6-piston-big-brake-kit-382x36mm/004038ecs01kt/ didnt want the 4 piston BMW performance calipers
I don't have a Z4, an M5, or that ECS kit to work with so unless it's just some very specific machining specs that you supply, not much I can do here, sorry.
If it helps the E89 Z4 35i(s) uses the same front end and braking system as the 3 series if that helps
