Nice!

I started looking at RR Sport Brembos because of this thread, and I noticed that pre-2013 Sports have Brembos also. Curious if those will work as well, they might be less expensive and easier to source?

Anyway, really looking forward to see how to get those onto an E53!

Yes you should be able to use the 2010-2013 6 piston brembo caliper. It will require the same degree of modification as the ones that I am using for my upgrade. I just secured my set of calipers from a 2014 model thats all.

Yes I am attempting to make this a low budget Brembo brake upgrade. The fixed rotor is a huge part of controlling the costs initially and for maintenance thereafter.

Just yibber yabbering I suppose.
Brakes are such a huge component of the operation of the vehicle.
If ya're are not starting from new, aside from my already mentioned brake lines - I would also rebuild/replace the seals on the calipers. They are relative cheap and inexpensive....

Looks like there are Brembos on the 06-09 models too. 4-pots only though.

Soooooo...do those rotors bolt right up? If they do then it looks like the caliper carrier is the key to it all? Enquiring minds want to know!

Okay, I'm in for some budget big brake love. I was going to pull my nasty old calipers and rebuild them after a sandblasting and painting, but after seeing this, I can't quite curb my excitement anymore. NEED!

Rotors bolt up with mo problem the Range Rover Sport Supercharged shares the same bolt pattern to the X5 E53.
