    Hi everyone,
    Just joined the site and was wondering if one of you lovely people could help me out.

    Someone I know is wanting to upgrade the brakes on an E65 730d, wants to make them look wider :/

    Does anyone know what needs to be changed, ie. calipers, pads and wheels, and to what size they will need to be changed to??

    Any part number for bits would be a big help, or just sizes is great!!

    Hope someone can help!!!

    dont really understand how you can make brakes wider but i think you mean an upgrade as in better discs and pads.im guessing the m3 or m5 discs and calipers would do.anyone feel free to correct me.

    You will probably need to go the aftermarket route and see what is available, I nice set of big red Brembo 4 pot calipers on big drill disks will look the part combined with some big 20" black rims

    Try the forum vendor CRN CRN Products (Brake Specialists) Shop you need to call them by the way, not leave a thread message, but I can safely say it will not be a cheap exercise
