[s-cars] going BIG

Are you having clearance issues radially where the caliper hits the inside
of the rim of the wheel or axially where the caliper hits the spokes or the
inner face of the wheel?

Except for the LS430, the CTS-V, the Jag XKR/XJR, Evo, STi, 350Z Track, etc.
are all Brembo calipers, most of those are actually only two different
Brembo calipers- the Evo, STi and 350Z use the same caliper, and the CTS-V,
Viper and Jag use the same caliper (IIRC). All are mentioned because they're
all relatively large, fixed 4-piston calipers that are significantly cheaper
than the Porsche Brembos.

You want a really big brake setup, get the C6 Corvette Z06 calipers- huge
6-piston setup made by PBR that works quite well. I will be getting a set of
those- $1800 for front & rear pads, rotors and calipers. That's not a bad
deal at all.

The other one that I have not checked would be either the AMG E55 8-piston
setup, the E63 6-piston or the Audi D3 S8, C6 RS6 or B7 RS4 brake setups.
The last would be fitting for an Audi, after all.
