SLK200 brake upgrade

I'm trying to put toghether all the bits and pieces required for brake upgrade and the forum is a great source of information. There is only one thing that seems to be unclear for me: people seems to upgrade from SLK200 OEM brakes to 350 brakes or AMG brakes. No one reported any problems, so does it mean that if I get any consistent set, like all parts from 350 for example, it should just fit? Is it really that easy?

If you do have a list of parts i.e. Calipers, caliper hangers and discs off of another Merc, which were easy to get hold of I would be interested in knowing the details.

I don't have the list, but after reading a lot about SLK brakes looks like if you can get full set from a SLK350 it's a plug & play job. 16" wheels are not compatible with SLK350 brakes - that's the only important thing.

Again, it's my future project, so the above info might not be correct.
