If you go to the R129 forum on this site and search the threads, you'll find lots of alternative suggestions to stock rotors and pads if you're inclined to change them. There are also vendors on that site that will sell you drilled rotors, ceramic pads, and all other manner of brake upgrades. It's not entirely clear those add-ons will substantially improve braking performance over stock, but they look cooler behind aftermarket wheels.
Since you're new to Benzworld, why don't you fill out your profile, and go nose around in the R129 forum which is filled with folks that have the same roadster you drive?
