Front caliper upgrades

Looking at swapping the front calipers on my 97 for more modern units. I'm just fed up of the constant maintenance they require. ( Replaced pistons, seals, tried both ferrodo & bmw brake pads and still within a few weeks they are crapped up enough to start squeeling as the pistons are siezing up. )

I guess the best bet is to get calipers from a later K1200. ( BMW branded Brembos, mine say Brembo on them. )

Just wondering if anybody else has upgraded and whether there are any other better options?
