Converting rear Mazda 3 brakes to Mazda 5 brakes

Hi, so I'm trying to do the Mazda 3 brake conversion I've seen around to get use of the bigger rotor from the Mazda 5. I know that in addition to getting some bigger Mazda 5 rotors, I need the caliper bracket to go with it. That's the problem I'm having. I've looked around and it's hard trying to find the right bracket from the Mazda 5. So, can anyone tell me if this is it: http://www.mazdapartswebstore.com/p/...2Y62628XA.html

I know there's a lot of discussion on if it's worth it or not, but honestly, my rotors need replacing and my thoughts are why not go with a bigger rotor? Thanks to anyone who can help.

It might be easier to use Mazda 6 brakes. Parts may be more easily available.

The Mazda 6 brakes? Are the rotors bigger for the Mazda 6, and what does it take to get them on the Mazda 3?

surely it would be better to get new M3 rotors and better tyres?

why are you looking to get bigger rotors?

Well, I want bigger rotors because not only am I an aggressive driver, I'm planning on getting 18x7.5 TSW Nurburing wheels, and the bigger rotor would look cleaner with that setup. I'm planning on getting better tires as well of course. And I'm sticking with regular vented rotors, I don't think the slotted rotors are beneficial to me, even as an aggressive driver.
I'm also going with MS3 big brakes on the front, but I'm pretty sure I know what I need on that front. I'm just trying to figure out if that bracket I linked to is the one I need to use the bigger rotors with my Mazda 3.
