First glimpse of the Big Brakes!

In a few weeks, we will be releasing a 12-piston 405mm and an 8-piston 380mm front kit (with a 380mm 4p rear kit) for M5/M6 with sequentially sized pistons for this application. We are in testing right now, but so far it's a HUGE improvement over stock when brake fade needs to be mitigated. This will also remove unsprung weight versus the stock brake setup. Here's a quick glimpse of the 8 pot 380mm setup on my M5...fits perfectly behind stock wheels WITHOUT need for spacers! Imagine what the 16" 12-piston will look like! The 12p will require a minimum 20" wheel.

I always thought that the limiting factor in braking is usually the tires. So why does having 12 pot fronts and 8 pot rears help, vs. the excellent BMW stock brakes?

I seriously doubt it requires an enduro to notice the difference. 2-3 laps around a typical track will show the braking deficiencies of the M5's stock brakes.
