Can you install Akebono BBK brakes on a 2015 Q50 Base model? I want to upgrade my brakes and need advise if its possible? and if so what are some good parts/links to get?

I doubt it. There isn't much more than 1/2 inch between the caliper and wheel barrel on my 18" winter set.

If the OP has a 2015 base model, it comes with 17x7.5 wheels. I don't think those will clear the Akebono BBK's. Will they?
If the avatar pic is his car, then the rims might clear the bbk. Hope he can post some specs.

Didn't look at his avatar. Definitely not OEM.

Need 18x8 to clear the Akebonos if I recall correctly the last time this topic came up.

I have 19.5X9.0 wheels, i just want to know before buying a brake set
Ah should be all good, may need to trim the dust shield but that would be it.

That's an odd size.

Or you bend them out of the way:
I'd personally cut them just for piece of mind, don't want road debris to knock them into the back of the brakes or wheel
while driving but to each his own.
