    Hi all, i tried to search for this, but things like m5 and e34 all get lost as they're too short!

    Should be a quick couple of questions -

    What work would be involved in swapping my brake set up for that of a higher spec car, say m5, 850, or newer car?

    Swap calipers, discs, pads etc - are the lines the same?

    Would I see much benefit, i.e are they much different?

    Or... would I see more/the same benfit from upgrading the current setup with say brembo discs, yellowstuff pads etc?

    I'm not after anything thats going to give me whiplash as soon as I step on them, just better than they are now!

    Cheers!

    i expect M5 stuff can be made to fit if your wheels are big enough,but you probably dont want to spend that much.
    for a mild upgrade get some new hoses and bleed the system...then think about better discs and pads.
    yellowstuff might be a bit hard for comfortable road use...redstuff might be better
