Angry E60 M5 brakes

Why does BMW still uses single piston floating caliper on the E60 M5 all round whereas Audi RS6 and Mercedes E55 AMG use 8-pistons monobloc caliper in front and 4 at the rear?

Will the braking be good as RS6 and E55?

no firm order for one yet... but it looks like we're definitely 100% going to replace the E39 M5 in Hong Kong to the E60 M5 when it gets released here
