Front discs 340mm

Hi all

I have just bought my first SLK....GULP. The front rotors are ok at moment but one of my worries is the cost when they go. I have looked and looked and searched for CLK55 and SLK55 for 340mm but they all come back as 345mm. Is it possible to machine the edge from 345 to 340mm? Are all the other dimensions the same?

thanks

There are a whole bunch of threads on this very subject, so search will be your friend...

Adam ( @rgv250ads ) did fit some front discs that he'd had machined down, and that's covered in full detail in a thread somewhere.

I think that Sean ( @Seanhump ) has a thread about some cheaper third party discs that he's bought recently, so worth searching for that thread too.

As you've already realised, it is mega-money to buy OEM though!
