Factory Brake Upgrade?

I was in the Infiniti showroom last night and noticed a G37s sitting there. It has larger rotors and four piston fixed calipers front, two piston rear. I wonder if they would fit on my 45? They looked like they would clear the factory 20's, the G37 had 19" wheels.

I called infiniti parts and they are on the back order for two month, so as soon as they will be available they'll call me to see if rotors and calipers will fit to fx.... it cost about $2.000 for everything rotors + calipers all around......

I thought that the 06 or maybe the 07 FX already had four caliper brakes as standard? This may be another way to go if the G37 unit doesn't fit.

Used to have aGraphite '03 FX35. Traded in for a black '08 G35 sedan. The G is fun but I do miss my FX!!!!

I have 06 and nope it's not four pot. I think it has thicker rotors than 05 and below but the calipers should be basically the same except the thickness they cover..

Those G37S brakes sure would be a nice upgrade. I wish there was a way to tell if they would just bolt on to the FX...

I really want a big-brake upgrade but I am not putting spacers on my wheels.

the funny thing is the OEM G37 sport brakes makes the wheels have a 43 offset front and 45 mm offset rears
