m6 brakes on e46 m3

have you heard of any body doing the m6 or m5 brakes instead of brembo bbk. i'm looking to upgrade my brakes (calipers, rotors, pads) on my 03 m3 and a friend who also happens to be a master mechanic for a bmw dealership suggested it to me to save costs. wanted to find some opinions before purchasing new/used brakes.

It'd probably work fine. You'd would probably need to get new carriers along with the rotors, pads and calipers. It will definitely have better stopping power than OEM M3 brakes.
