It is possible that the 2-pot calipers will need a different master 
cylinder, although Blau's web site shows the same MC for all 5000's from 82 
to 88, so it may be the same after all.  The 6-spoke rims for the G54's will 
not fit over the G60's, though, _THAT_ I know (winter wheels are on a mix of 
G54 and G60 6-spokers).
Link to wheel image (not sure that it will work, but anyway....):
The letter at the end of the part number, and the manufacturing date on the 
casting are the key - I believe "D" is a post-86 letter.
Not sure if the carriers for the G60 will line up with the holes in the 
strut for G54's, but it's probable that they do (fairly easy to check).
