E34 M5 calipers go with a 315x28 rotor. I _think_ they're single piston.

E28 M5 calipers go with a 300x30 rotor. They're 4 piston.

What is the difference between e28 M5 calipers and e34 M5 calipers?

I may be buying a set of E34 M5 front calipers from a guy who is also selling his stock cat-back exhaust which was taken off at 26k miles. He's asking $450 for the exhaust. If anyone's interested, I'll check it out when I go look at the calipers. ***I have no idea whether the M5 exhaust bolts up to any other E34's>***

Also, if I decide to pass on the calipers, would anyone else be interested in them?
