I was looking to purchase Brembo cross drilled slotted rotors from my CLK cab.

Anyone use them or any comments?

The ebay ones were the ones I saw.

Did you get the front and rear kit?

Did they work well with the stock calipers?

thanks

Some of the inexpensive Brembo rotors on Ebay you see are not "authorized" Brembo performance parts.

Here is original goods
http://www.brembo.com/ENG/Performance/SportBrakes/SportBrakes2.htm

Brembo supplies blank rotors and sells them worldwide. They are just OEM spec rotors. People get them and have someone with a drill press put holes in them and/or slot them. They are not to any specs.

Some factories in China make blank OE rotors and they even copy the Brembo boxes with logos. They get shipped in from overseas, purchased in bulk, and drilled out by 3rd parties. So who knows what you are really buying and where it actually originated from.

With respect to them looking cool, you may as well buy new factory Benz parts from dealership or buy actual real Brembo parts from an authorized Brembo reseller. (www.brembo.com you can see all the applications they provide and part numbers)

From my experience most Brembo OE size performance slotted rotors will cost about $200+ range per pair,

You can go to catalouge and see applications:
http://www.brembo.com/ENG/Performance/Catalogue/

Notice a lot of model applications we see on Ebay are not even listed in Brembo catalouge.

Just want to give a heads up for those who may not know. I was a victim of this sham myself before doing some research.

True that.
But most people that buy these rotors on ebay are doing for 80% looks only . As long as of course there is some functionality .

Simply buying rotors that are OE brembos wont do ur braking perfomance any good .
You need the whole kit , 4 pistons calipers , brake lines even servo in some cases to get that porsche braking performance.
Unless u are will to spend 4k.
$200 ebay rotors and some caliper paint will be just fine . [:D]
