standard brakes from a 2013 slk55 amg can be installed on a slk32 amg?

Does anyone know if the standard brakes from a 2013 slk55 amg can be installed on a slk32 amg? im assuming 18" wheels and bigger offset or spacers to compensate for the larger calipers, but otherwise is it doable? with same brake booster/abs pump etc? and is it bolt on? thanks.

I have a vague recollection of someone looking at a similar mod.
Switching brakes between different generations.

I'm fairly sure it was problematical.

Try a search but omit specific models.

Go for R170 to R171 (which is the swap I think got raised) or R172 (which is what you want.).
