BMW Brakes - ATE vs. Girling

The ATE calipers are recommended when upgrading to the BMW setup - but why? Will the Girlings work?

When I did the upgrade on Julia's car, I got the ATEs but it was just what happened to be on the car. So, I checked with the best source of brake info in the San Diego area and he said that some Girlings have an aluminum/alloy body that can have excessive pitting in the piston bore due to corrosion. They have steel ones also that are comparable with the ATEs and have same size pistons, seals, etc. Either will work equally well if the body is steel. If you were going to have a race only car, then the alloy ones might be the way to go as thay save a pound or two of unsprung weight. Hope this helps.
