Default BMW M3/M4 BBK using CCB gold calipers

CCB Front 6 pot caliper (400x38mm)


CCB Rear 4 pot caliper (380x28mm)


Standard brake:
Front: 4 pot caliper (380x30mm)
Rear: 2 pot caliper (370x24mm)

Is it possible to retrofit standard brake with CCB 6/4 pot (gold) calipers

We will be offering below brake option:

CCB Conversion: Replace your CCB with RB light weight two piece rotors which can also be bundled with 6/4 gold calipers as BBK upgrade.
Front: 400x34 (P/N 2446)
Rear: 380x28 (P/N 2447)
Alternative brake combination:
Smaller front - 380x36 (P/N 2474) This kit will have the same front as standard brake but 36mm instead of 30mm thickness for extra thermal capacity, 380/380 kit fits under 19" wheels.

Larger rear - 396x29 (P/N 2475) This kit will have the same rear as M5 brake but with thicker rear, 400/396 kit for 20" wheels installation

Benefit of RB brake kit:
  • Retain OE compatibility (caliper, rotor, pad)
  • True BBK upgrade to 400/380mm rotors
  • Lower cost on initial purchase and future replacement

Default Why RB?

Most experienced in CCM to Iron brake conversion:
  • Aston Martin DBS
  • Audi R8
  • BMW M3/M4, M5
  • Corvette ZR1/Camaro Z28
  • Ferrari F430/F458
  • Lamborghini Gallardo
  • Mercedes S63/S65
  • McLaren 12C
  • Porsche 996/997/991

Iron to CCM upgrade:

Nissan GT-R, and all above that CCM is only optional or not available such as Mercedes C63 S (rear), G, or GT S

We team up with Surface Transforms from UK and stock their CCM-X discs in our Fullerton, CA facility, in addition to using Corvette ZR1 discs.

We tool our own hardware, design and build rotor hats from forged aluminum alloys, so we are able to produce the finest quality CCM brake system with short leadtime.

Default CCB calipers compare to Porsche 991 GT3

Front:

CCB 6-pot 30/34/36mm



PCCB 6-pot 30/30/30mm







Rear:

CCB 4-pot 28x28mm



PCCB 4-pot 34x34mm






Porsche calipers shown are in red (for iron brakes), but they are exactly the same as pccb in body size and piston sizes.

BMW CCB front caliper is heavier than 991, but smaller/lighter in the rear as you can see from the above pictures.

We also verified the rear caliper inside curvature and doubt its suitability for any rotor larger than 380mm. Note M5 396mm rear rotors use single piston floating caliper not 4-pot, while front is the same as M3/M4 CCB.

Comparing with Porsche 991 GT3 rotor sizes:

PCCB
Front: 410x36mm
Rear: 390x32mm
Standard (Iron)
Front: 380x34mm
Rear: 380x30mm

We are pleased to confirm that the rear 4 pot gold calipers can accommodate a rotor size up to 396mm w/o problem, as per below test fit picture (base rotor=380mm, template=396mm).



This means you can now upgrade your 5 series (also for 6 & 7) to have the same rotor size as M5 below:

Front: 400x34 vs. OE rotors @400x36 for iron, @400x38 for CCB. Calipers are same as M5 6 pot calipers, but in gold color.

Rear: 396x29 vs. OE @396x24 for iron and 396x26 for CCB. Calipers will be 4 pot fixed type (as shown in above pic) vs. M5's single pot floating caliper

Alternative CCM rotor kit designed and built by RB with Corvette ZR1 discs (394x36mm)

This front CCM rotor can replace OE's CCB rotor, or as upgrade for those with ron brakes (need 6pot gold caliper), required adaptors are included for a 100% bolt on installation.

RB calipers use the same pads as Corvette ZR1 (D1395) and Nissan GTR (D1382), two most popular track brake pads with lots of choice of compounds and lower cost than used in OE's 6-pot gold caliper.



Additional advantage is for future rotor replacement at low cost. You can buy direct from GM dealers or online retailers (Amazon/eBay) at fraction of CCB cost, while we can provide after service for brake pads, hardware or rotor assembly etc.
