SLK55 R171 P030 Custom made front Brake disks for 450 a pair

Hi Guys,

If there are any of you P030 owners out there who are due a brake change or want a spare set of outer Rotors for 450 let me know.

As I have just got a friend of mine to make me a set and add the nice "J" groves to mine. You can have any pattern added to them(drilled, drill and groove, groove, J hooks)

You can reuse the "bells" and fixings which are asy to take off the old disk. they are also much lighter then the normal already light weight disks as Merc actually uses 362mm disks (hence the huge lip we all get) and these are exactly 360mm so all of the disk is used.

In the pictures you can see what they look like freshly made and then what my old ones looked like.
Then finally what they look like on the car using the "old" bell centre and fixings. I also have EBC yellow stuff pads for track days and zero brake fade. (which are part number DP41591R if anyone wants some, they are about 100-115.)

Hi Slicernet

Myself & Seanhump went thought the same thing last year & had the front disks reversed engineered by Tar.ox the brake people .

I painted the centre bell before assembly . I glad we have a few options now with the front disks as the dealerships were make a killing . Nice grooves in your old disks

I would be interested in getting more info on having a set of outer rotor rings made for the AMG (non P30) 340x32mm rotors. I can't find outer ring replacements for the 1714210112 stock 2005 AMG rotors.
