The wheel hub is the same on 280-350 sport/standard so 300 or 330mm disc will screw in the hub ( one small screw).
You might try just buying the bigger disk or:
You will need calipers and pads for sport package.
Depending on the size of the caliper you might need new wheels ( i really don't think so ).

The brake hoses are the same on slk 350 and 280.
On my slk 350 i have 4 pots caliper and 17" wheels.
If you have 17" you should be ok.
