AMG 32 brake caliper upgrade.

Hello guys.
I want to upgrade my brakes on my 200 kompressor. I was thinking to upgrade to 32AMG brake calipers.
Can someone provide me an VIN number of an authentic SLK 32 AMG R170?

Thanks.

You will also have to use 17" wheels. The front disc and caliper set up on the SLK32 won't fit inside the standard 16" rims fitted to your SLK200.
ps. also means your space saver spare won't fit too

Yes, I know. I already use 19" wheels.

Actually, it may be worth looking into a rotor/caliper upgrade using C32 AMG front brakes. You'll get better calipers, and (IIRC) 340mm rotors vs the 330mm from the SLK32. I do believe all that would need to be needed is some spacers for the caliper.

You can buy an appropriate space saver, should you still want to use one.

But make sure you get the fittings too, as they are different to our normal studs.

If your SS tyre is original it is 18 years old anyway.
Long past it's use by date.
