congratulations on a job well done.
Usually when I watch, my mechanic he charges me more.
Hope this has not happened =?

I think my 350 has same brake set up as some of the 55,s

I have just changed mine to the following

Fronts genuine merc discs with ebc red stuff pads ( changed from brembo due to fade at high temp and lots of dust )

On the rear I have gone for Brembo extra discs and brembo pads over the standard merc rears.

Done

Note to others, these do NOT fit the early 6 piston calipers. They are about half the size. Akebono's own website says these are the ones, but they are not even close. I am glad my stock ones are fine, they will stay in. Now the search restarts to find a low dust pad!

GLAD you have shared this as i had found the Akebono web site and was not sure if they are the right ones or not .. the rears cross reference correctly but the front there is no cross reference to the 6 pot front discs OEM numbers
