2005 55 AMG 4-Pot Rear Brakes - Drilled or Not?

Evenin' All. the rear discs on my 2005 55 AMG - 4-pot rear calipers - are quite heavily scored, and need replacing. Those fitted are drilled and vented.

According to ECP/Carparts4less, the Brembos they have are vented only. All those on eBay are vented only, except for some Febi discs which are drilled and vented. Can anybody tell me whether the MB-supplied OE would be drilled or not?

Hi @SLK55BOF, I see you didn't get a reply to this, I bought these:

Thank you for that. They are competitively priced for Brembos, but I think I'm going to go with OEM Febis - 98 on eBay, as compared to 153 for these Brembos.

I thought Brembo were OEM on these cars. When I bought mine they were just over 100 for a pair, must have had a better offer on. Guess I got lucky.
