Are the R56 front brake calipers and carriers the same as the R57?

I need a set for the front of my R53 as it's brake time and a little bit of an upgrade would be nice. I want to do the R56 upgrade but can only find 2009 R57 Convertible front calipers and carriers at a reasonable price at the the salvage yard. I have already ordered a complete R56 rotor/pad kit with the 294mm rotors so I want to make sure I get the right calipers to match.

Thanks guys.

Thanks all, I went ahead and ordered a set of remanufactured R56 Cooper S specific calipers and carriers. Considering they are powder coated with new seals and hardware and they were only about $80 more and I don't have to go to the salvage yard, take them off and rebuild and paint them, there really wasn't much of a decision.
