AMG C32/S55 brakes 4/6 piston calipers will fit on your car? Do u know if they will fit on a R107, will i need to get specific rotors for them too or will the OEM slotted rotors work?

Are you sure about the 32mm offset been ok for the 107s, because atm my current wheels are 30mm and only 7" wide and they are almost touching the inside guard while still been 10mm+ away from the outer guards?

As to supercharging, all u need is a simple piggy back ECU such as what 300ce turbotechnics dyno revisit - ShopForum is using. Or go the whole hog and install a MSII.

C32 Brakes fit,I made the brackets...I pulled the brakes off my 95 or 96 W124 Cab don't remember which one and made brackets then put them back on the w124.It's not a simple bolt up issue,but I can supply the brackets.

The picture with the silver AMG's I also have 32 brakes on but I kept it this way for just a few days..
My 6.9 is under reconstruction right now for a 6 speed and S55 brakes I will try and locate the pic but I can assure you it won't be soon,I have over 3000 pictures but spent most of my time actually building cars so sometimes I do something and it goes many phases without pics

18x8 won't fit the early W107 .possibly they may fit the later R107 560SL which used a different rear end and front hub .
Fitting ther bigger brakes is easy,in fact the later brakes can be bolted to the W108 hubs with the mentioned fabbed brackets.
This is a picture of a friends car,a W107 with bigger brakes,specially made in Germany by Zimmer and if you look close it has hydro suspension.

It also has a 6.9 engine... :-)

Hydro suspension!!!!!! What, where, how?? Was it complicated to install? How much did it cost? Is it a kit? Is it fully adjustable? More information please.

18" wheels

I am restoring a 1970 280SL and I want to put 18" steel wheels on it. Please tell me where I can get them.
