I remember an article a year or so back, shooting out the M5 vs. RS6, and another car, that had this info.

I'm trying to find the max braking g's the stock brakes (w/OE tires) produce on the M5. Anyone happen to have that info handy?!
thanks!

I did some measurements on that. The E39 M5 will peak about 1.25 G during braking, but there are ABS induced oscillations 1.05 - 1.25 G during full braking.

(The E60 has a wonderfully flat, ultra fast ABS regulated 1.20-1.30 G braking.)
