F10 M5 or F80 M3 brakes

Has anyone tried to figure out if the rotors and calipers are a direct bolt on or require some additional hardware/fabrication? Coming from the Audi community a popular swap were the Porsche cayenne/Vw touareg calipers (brembo 6 piston) that required minimal hardware to make work.

Someone has already swapped on F10 CCs on an E92. Saw the pic months ago.

They require fabrication unfortunately.
