Default Cadillac ATS Brembos on G8? Will it work?

Anyone know if the brembos on a Cadillac ATS will work on the G8? I think the rotor size is the same as the GT so all you would need is the calipers and pads. Might be a good way to get the looks and a little bit more performance without dropping a tone of cash on a CTS-v or Camaro set up

I'm not sure if they'll fit but I'm pretty sure they'll be very, very expensive.

Ya if you could let me know that would be great. Part numbers too would be helpful. I can pick up a set of front for about $300.

It would be a 4 piston caliper vs out 2 piston. Not to mention they look a ton better than our stock calipers.

All Brembo 4 piston calipers are the same. I am sure the ATS ones are a different colour than the rest. If I do my upgrade I will get the 04-07 CTS ones and change the colour. I know I can buy the fronts new,have them powdercoated, with rotors for less than one of the ATS ones.

If these fit then it should be as simple as a caliper swap without a rotor replacement. Like I stated above these would be an upgrade for someone who is looking for a little more stopping power and it will get rid of the ugly stock calipers. A complete CTS-V front set up goes for $600+, I can get a set (2) of ATS calipers for $300.

you can get (2) of ATS (Brembos) calipers for $300 ???

difference is not in the just caliper, but how it's mounted.
and rotors are not the same either.

Looking at ATS fronts they look like them may be a little thinner and might fit easier behind OEM wheels up front. They fit behind 17s but don't know if they will fit the spokes. Defentely smaller than first gen CTS, but would be nice to know if they would work on our G8s.

Someone needs to try this. If it really is only $300 and bolts up I'll be all over this.
