anyone knows what's the usa equivalent rotor/pads for rear euro spec s600? i'm getting the euro spec s600 calipers from mbenznl but want to source out the rotor and pads in the usa. i heard the R230 SL's has the same rotor and pad. maybe the SL 55. does anyone know?
I have not yet needed to change the pads in the 2 years and almost 20K miles since I upgraded. The pads still have a ton of life, and the rotors are still in good shape, and don't have the wavy lines I see on cars of similar age with the stock brakes.
When I typed in the part numbers (even googling them) it listed a lot of aftermarket options.
The front rotors are # 221 421 08 12 and that the rear
rotors are 230 423 08 12 which would mean that the 230 423 09 12
should fit as well which is the (drilled) rotor for the SL55/65...
the rear calipers should be here before the weekend. still have not ordered the rotors and pads yet. called the dealer parts dept but they couldn't tell me any description about the two rotors. i know the part number only differ by one number but it's kind of strange that the rotor for AMG SL 55/65 has the same size as the regular SL550. does anyone know for sure? i want drilled rotors to match the front but i hate to pay $200 and can't return it. does anyone know a store for rotors where you can return it if they don't fit? pepboys?
