Everything can be direct bolt-on between Touareg and Cayenne, but it may require more parts than just the disc and caliper

Calipers bolt to wheel bearing housings, and the mounts are different between the two calipers, so you will need a different wheel bearing housing, which is cast in the vertical strut that connects upper and lower control arms, the whole piece needs to be changed. You will then need a different wheel bearing to suit the new bearing housing.

If you want it to function properly you might also need a few hoses with different bends in them to be 100% factory, and you might also need to recode the brakes.
