E39 540i brakes vs M5 brakes

Hey guys, just wondering if there is a difference in the brake setup on a 540i and an M5 (E39). I see people doing the swap on 528's and 530's but can't find anything on the 540. I assume there must be a difference. Anyone have the specs (front and rear), and opinion if this swap is even worth it.

Thanks

Exclamation Just a future note.....

to anyone contemplating M5 brakes...to house these larger brakes...(except for the BMW 17" Style 66) you will need to move up to 18" rims (Incl. winters).
