Rotorsa nd Pads for 2016 E350

Hello, the dealer quoted $900 for the front break job. The car has only 27 kmi and I'm returning it in 9 months since my lease is ending. What decent but not very expensive rotors/brakes should I install? Someone on the leasehackr forum recommended stoptech.
Is this rotor acceptable? https://www.autozone.com/brakes-and-...255_2708_24848 Thanks in advance

Your lease may require you to replace worn parts with factory original parts. Better check that.

Even if you need oem parts, the pads list for $90, rotors for $120 each, and a wear sensor for $10 if you need it. So at full price you're at $340 plus tax or if you go on line you can get everything for no more than $295 plus shipping.
If you don't have to have oem parts, the cheapest junk you can find will last as long as the original equipment rotors they install. Mine lasted 17K before they got warped. I would stick with the MB oem pads, just my experience. I got some original equipment manufacturer rotors off the auction site for about half the cost of MB parts - delivered. Good luck.

Well I bet they're not going to check the thickness of the rotors when you return it to them. You can normally get away with just replacing the pads once and the rotors the second time so you could just do a pad slap now. Technically you can also measure the thickness of the rotors and replace them if they're too thin, but if you haven't driving it that much and you've been easy on the brakes (lots of highway) then the pad slap is probably the way to go and you're in spec anyway. Nothing fancy about it too, lots of those local indy places that advertise $89-$109 brake jobs should be able to do it. You only need the wear sensor if the light is already on. If you don't have a brake warning light on, you can just reuse the sensor.

At 16,000 miles use, the rotors should be barely worn, if at all. And the pads will be less than half used.

Didn't know that leases require you to return the car in like new condition. Yet another reason not to rent a car.

I want to replace front rotors and pads not due to lease regulations but because I get lots of annoying vibration when I use brakes.

I bought OEM rotors and pads from the dealer for $300 with tax: they matched the internet price. I hope I can install them myself with a help of a friend who has lift in his garage.
I probably could've used aftermarket parts and wouldn't notice much difference in the next 8-9 months before I return the car.

BTW the brake light is not on

Not sure if this fits 2016, but I have the non-sport and have had great luck with this

I think i have at least 20K miles on these and they still look and perform great.

I ended up convincing the dealership to waive the labor charges and I just paid $286 total for the front axle brake job.

They did not waive they just lowered their parts cost...

Huge mark up on parts.

dealers do nothing for free.... for most part and they have to pay the technician somehow

Whatever they did I was very happy to have it done at the MB dealership for less than $300
