The link works fine. What I told him is that 330mm w203 brakes fit inside stock 16" wheels WITH a 10mm hubcentric spacer. The only reason I used 312mm w211 E500 4 piston brakes on my car is because I was told 330mm w203 brakes wouldn't fit inside 16" wheels. That advice was wrong. As you can see from pic 4 in my link, there's more than 10mm clearance between the 312mm 4 piston caliper and the inner diameter of the 16" wheel.
The W220 was sold in the US with either 312mm or 330mm brakes inside 16" wheels depending on the model year.
Sorry, I don't know which brake caliper is in your picture. MB (brembo) made the same brake caliper with different length mounting ears to clear 312mm, 330mm 345mm rotors.
