Question

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!
