Question Brakes from Z06 on m3 e46?

Pardon my ignorance but is that technically possible? I guess this might be true up to the point of the calipers and rotors mounting points with a slight modification to the adapter. How about the rest?
The kit features 6 piston front calipers with 355mm x 32mm (14" x 1.3") rotors and 4 piston rear calipers with 340mm x 26mm (13.4" x 1") rotors.

Anything is possible with money. There is a guy in here who fit porsche brakes on his 325 or 330ci I think.

Fronts are possible...the rears you would lose your parking brake because the Z06 rear parking brake drum is larger than the E46 m3.

I have Z06 rotors and calipers on the front of my car and my rims are 18" OZ Ultraleggera. Of course it's an E36, but that doesn't matter. You can run stock 18" wheels.

For a rear brake kit, I like the Porsche 996 Brembo with stock E46 M3 rear rotors. There is a thread on m3 cutters all about it.
