Hi guys

I’ve a year 2000 S280, I’m refurbishing the calipers. Could anyone tell me what the original colour of the calipers on these cars were?

They are in good condition, but want them looking as new as possible. Currently they look more like black/dark grey.

thanks

Nick

Hi Nick,

We have Dad's car, a 2000 S430, and the project 2000 S500, both of which have calipers painted black.

Hope this helps for your s280.

Cowboyt, Tusabes- thanks for the info.

I found this pic on the net, from an actual Mercedes w220 brochure bitd.

Looks like black main park, and silver/grey at the back.

Thanks again

I would take Black over Silver any day because of the brake dust

Might be a pre-facelift vs. post-facelift thing. Our post-facelift cars have silver-painted calipers, whereas our pre-facelift ones have the black calipers. In the case of our cars, both of our post-facelift W220's have the AMG Sport Package as well; neither of our pre-facelift cars do.
