Big brake kit on X6 non M

I am looking for a BBK for my X6.
Anyone on the board that fitted one on their car?

I saw one with red brembos, these were hot. But I think too pricey for me.
What kind of other options do I have?
Also, does a X6M BBK fit on a non X6M? Is it a direct bolt on? This seems the cheapest option I guess.

Great question! i was wondering whether or not there is going to be BBK for x5 and X6.
Question: does Brembo makes brakes for new BMW M cars??? or is it BMW's own brakes???
Brembo makes brakes for Jeep grand cheroke STR8, Cadilac etc... If they do, then i would just go for M BBK.

Stop tech makes a bbk and it should fit a non m, calipers painted ur choice when ordered I'm pretty sure. And they are cheaper than the brembos.

Got some quotes for the stoptechs.
2900 euro for the front
2600 euro for the rear

What do you guys think?

That is what I am wondering as well, cause this seems the easiest and cheapest option for a reliable brake upgrade.

I was told by BMW that they will not fit.
However, in my view it is worth going for the aftermarket BBK - so much braking power!

Hmmm, I would be surprised if it would not fit regular X6. On regular X5, you need to enlarge the rear rotor hub diameter from 72.6 to 74.1mm but on regular X6 it should fit without mod. Can't use 18" wheel anymore

On their website only the Xdrive 3.5i is listed, mine is 5.0i. Do you guys know which BBK could fit ?

Cheers
