porsche calipers

im in love with porsche calipers, ive noted that even tough rotors arent much bigger than the ones on my z the caliperss provide a sporty look thats exactly what i am looking for, tought of getting 330i calipers but they arent big enough. anyone knows if i can put porsche calipers on my 2.5si? which porsche calipes fit?i know they are not necessary i am doing this just for the looks(by the way please dont recommend getting a z4m or something like that because in my country a 2.5si costs about 80 grand and an m like 13o which i think is plain preposterous so getting one is not an option so ill just make mine look as beautiful as i can) thx guys

You would probably like Mov-it's brakes... I BELIEVE... Might be wrong tho, that they make Porsche's brakes / calipers.

U'd have to find out from someone that really knows, but i believe that the e36 style brake bracket fits on a Z4M. You'll have to call around and find out. Start with that Ultimate Garage place...

Your existing master cylinder won't be able to drive the appropriate pressure to those Porsche calipers for your brakes to function as they're designed. Do so at your own risk.
