Are they the same as the G37S Akebono Calipers? Thinking about picking up front and rear set off a g37S and was wondering if they will fit onto the Q50
Yes the G37s Akebono BBK will bolt right on to the Q50. Unfortunatly they will not fit the oem 17" non-sport wheels.

I would go.for coils instead if you are buying used wheels so u have room for adjustment to whatever size u go for!

Hey brotha... I have a 2015 Q50 non-sport. Will 2015 sport (Akebono) calipers bolt right in to my car (both front and rear)? If I do this, I will probably buy aftermarket rotors anyway, but just curious, are the rotors of the sport vs non-sport a different size, for example 14" vs 15"? Or are they the same? Thank you!

Others will chime in:


I don't think there is any difference in our rotors. But the brakes are much larger. As they discussed above.... If you have the standard 17" wheels, those will not clear the brakes.... meaning, the brakes will impede the wheels from turning.


If you have the 19"Sport wheels as an upgrade, that should be fine. If you are buying used wheels, be careful as to whether or not they will fit with Sport Brakes. I have the Sport. I bought used wheels from a G37Sport.....I had to run 10mm spacers all around to clear the brakes. It worked out well, but did cause some frustration when not expecting this hiccup.

Hey Tommy... The Akebono calipers are the same but the rotors are different and I'm not sure about the brake lines. The rotors on the non-sport have a smaller diameter compared to the sport rotors.

Do you have any idea if anything besides new rotors are needed? Also, any idea where I can find the appropriate rotors to fit with akebono calipers? I just purchased some and need to figure out what else I need to make them fit. I have 19" sport wheels from a G37 so I know the calipers will clear, just not sure what I need to bolt them on.
