Recommended brake discs for W115?

Going to get all four brake disc replaced and am in the market for non-abs discs. Can anyone recommend any brands that have paired well with your W115. So many in the market it is hard to choose from.

Do you mean a brake upgrade, such as brembo, wilwood package (New oversize rotors)? Or just a pad upgrade? If it's an upgrade, you need to make sure your wheels will clear.

I don't know of a bolt on, and if there is such a thing, I would be interested in it also.

For my W110, I used EBC pads (green) and used stock rotors and calipers.

You know what, was using the wrong word. My two rear calipers need to be replaced left and right, that's a whole lot easier to find. Now, your calipers have never been replaced? They can last that long? I'm also assuming if you replace two in the back you need to replace the two front calipers as well so I'm not mixing brands.

I have rebuilt calipers in the front. These are readily available. I do replace an axle as a set. I believe mine were the original calipers, about 100k miles on them. You should be able to find a shop to rebuild what you already have.

My rear calipers are off a W108, as i have the 3.27:1 axle now which came with discs. (The W110 came with 4.1:1 and drum brakes.)
