AMG Brembo fitment question

Hello all,

are all amg brembos the same size? i am looking to upgrade the small brake setup on my c300 sport and am curious if any other amg calipers will fit other than the C63 amg upgrade? The C63 upgrade is very pricey and the other amg calipers are very affordable..So any help or advice is VERY appreciated!

Thank You all!

not all AMG brakes are created equal ... what others are you looking at .. .you may want to look at Brembo's as well

how is the car being used and why do you need an AMG big brake kit?

I have looked at the brembo kit,its about 3.5-4.5k! too much for me. like most, i want the upgraded bbk for the appearance. i have been doing a lot of searching and it looks like the c63 amg brembo kit is going to be the best and easiest for me. for a bit over 3k i can get the front calipers/rotors, and rear calipers/rotors and mounting hardware which i have learned is a killer deal and everything is brand new, oem items!

If you can get the fronts and rears for that I'm impressed. That's a great deal for sure. Pictures when you are done.

C300 has 295x28mm front and 300x10 rear rotor, assume you have 17" wheel you can only go up to 13" (332mm) kit w/o having to buy larger wheels.

C63 has 360x36 front and 330x26 rear, so you would need 18 or 19" wheel and the set up for the braking need and size may well over kill for your C300.

I would think a well designed 13" front and rear brake kits are more suitable for your need and budget (~35K).
