I have a 2006 SLK55 WITHOUT the P30 performance package.
I'm going to need to do brakes at some point in the near future. As always, I'd rather upgrade and or go aftermarket than pay stealership parts prices... so I turn to my favorite source for information: SLKWorld!
I'm trying to get a sense of what my options are for aftermarket brake parts.
So far I *think* that EBC makes YellowStuff pads for the front and rear, but I'm getting conflicting information from some sites.
Hawk Performance seems to do some pads, specifically HB616N.607, but I don't know if those are front or rear.
Past that, I've got a couple other lesser name options, but again sites are very conflicted as to what they are.
I've only found one aftermarket option: RacingBrake RB-2118 (via vividracing.com). It's the right size (340mm), but I've never heard of the brand. I also can't tell if the price is for two or one. If it's for two, it's a great deal. One, not so much.
Goodridge stainless steel lines seem to be an option, and they're definitely cheap enough.
So anyone know any other options? I'm particularly interested in good aftermarket rotors, but pad suggestions are welcome too!
