Right, the short answer is no, only on the rears. For the fronts the easiest kit is the Porsche big red calipers (which are basically the same size & shape as the R brembo calipers) and there are adapters and kits readily available.

Check the last 2 pages of that VolvoSpeed thread. Two sources are listed for cheap calipers.

Doubt it, you'd need to get front rotors that matched the specs.

What's your goal here?

My main goal is to put bigger wheels on it and i don't want to keep the stock brakes because they will look like **** with the bigger wheels, thats why I'm trying to upgrade to something bigger and better looking. This is car i just for driving, i don't race it so i don't need the best brakes that are there, i just want something that will nicely will the space in that 17" wheel.

Try to find a set of the 302mm brackets. Then all you need is rotors, it uses the same caliper. It doesn't fill out the wheel like a big brake but it's way better than the 285. Here it is under an 18" wheel.

Can't find a good picture of my fronts but the disc is the same on both ends.

Also check out ceikaperformance for front kits that will save you about $1000 over the 6 piston brembo kits.

The Porsche brackets can also be used with the Boxster S calipers which is a much less expensive option than using the 993 calipers.
That is good to know. I like the Mono block calipers better and definitely cheaper!

Has anyone used the ceika brakes? I was a little worried because I haven't seen any reviews

Myself and lookforjoe. He has a full set so I wanted to try them. Didn't get loads if miles in last year but otherwise they were awesome.
