FS BREMBO Gran Turismo 355MM Front Big Brake kit fits W209 W203 R171

I'm selling a complete Brembo front BBK part# 1B2.8030A

According to Brembo's website says this kit fits

2003-2006 W209 CLK55

2003-2009 W209 non AMG CLK's

2004-2011 R171 non AMG SLK's

2001-2007 W203 C classes including AMG


This is a 4 piston 355 millimeter kit.

I purchased a full set of front and rear brakes from a member on MBworld named pisces777 several years ago. I used the rears on my W210 and these fronts have been sitting in the garage since I purchased them.

Pisces said the brakes had 39,000 miles in the following post.

FS: Brembos and everything else - Page 2 - MBWorld.org Forums

I am including a set of BRAND NEW PADS and also BRAND NEW SLOTTED ROTORS AND HATS

The Calipers were sanded fully with 800 grit to assure good adhesion as well as remove most chips and are repainted with caliper paint and cleared. The stickers are on top of the clear so you can easily change them to another color or to "AMG" or whatever you desire if you feel so inclined.

When I upgraded my W210 to Brembo's on all four corners I felt a very noticeable change in pedal feel. A major improvement over the stock brakes. Probably one of my favorite mods. I'm guessing the improvement is the same on the other Mercedes chassis.

Minor nit picks.

As I mentioned before the pads and rotors are brand new so the brakes should perform really well and last a long time. However the rest of the kit (calipers, brackets, bolts, hoses, ect) have 39K on them so there are some cosmetic defects and what not.

The paint on the calipers is not show car perfect but it looks pretty good and once installed they will look great. Honestly the factory job from Brembo is not perfect either.

One of the dust covers for the bleeder screw is ripped. It will still keep out dust and debris but it hangs out in the wind a bit. It could most likely be glued or replaced very cheaply but it will function just fine as is and most people will never notice it anyway.

The rotors have some light oxidation from sitting so long. This will wear off very quickly after driving a few miles. Not much difference from the flash rust you get after washing your car or driving in the rain.

The Brembo boxes were for my W210 set so if you want the boxes the part # on them will be incorrect. When I purchased these from pisces777 they came in a regular box. It will most likely be cheaper to ship them in a regular box as the Brembo boxes are over sized. If you want the factory W210 Brembo boxes I can do that.
