Single or Twin Piston Caliper

Hi, 2007 SLK350 Designo. Has drilled discs and 17in alloys. Do I have single piston or twin piston front calipers? Thought Id ask before I pulled them off. Just need to order the right front pads.
Cheers

I think the question should be two pot or four pot!


look at thread https://www.slkworld.com/tires-wheel...-calipers.html


post 4 is four pot


post 5 is 1 pot (dont think fitted to 350) or sliding caliper


post 12 is four pot



post 15 (mine) two pot


there is a slight but subtle difference in the outside appearance of two and four pot calipers
