Default R56 Brakes?

What parts are needed to upgrade my brakes to the larger, r56 brakes?
New rotors, pads, maybe calipers too??

Someone gotta venture this so all of us can follow it

i thought the new r56 brakes are the same as the r53 JCW brakes
you'll need to upgrade the whole shebang, no? (rotors, calipers, etc.)

I'm interested in the new R56 JCW rotors. Looks like a good upgrade for the R53 JCW brakes

Those rotors are pretty nice. We ordered a set today for eric's R53. Still working on a conversion kit for the R53 non jcw guys. Hopefully have some more info about that next week.

Just call your local dealership and I'll bet they'll tell you what all comes in the JCW brake kit. Take all the hardware/bracket part numbers and anything that's different from your current assembly swap out. Then use the rotors, pads and calipers from the R56. I betcha that would get you darn close.

Nope, this is a new option available for the R56's. Normally they're just plain rotors

bump where's my update at yo. I could use some bigger front brakes and I think these will fit the bill.

p.s. I little birdie told me waylen of waymotorworks.com has access to relativly cheap upgraded pads for the jcw/r56 brakes... those of you that have them keep your old worn out pads. They need the back plates for them.
