i looked into those and almost bought them but they didnt say much about performance. i figured since i was doing a performance upgrade with the bigger brakes then i should probably try to get performance pads lol. i almost bought ebc yellow stuff but i dont race my car so i went with the reds.I've got Akebono Euro Spec Ceramics, front and back,st and back on my '97 C280.
No dust, no dust, no dust!
Regarding actual braking capacity seem OK to me, but who knows?
where do you find rotors that cheap?!?! lol. im getting a new set of slotted rotors and all 4 will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 bucks after shipping. i guess thats because i have the sl500 rotors... but im still curious where to get them cheap.Funny, I just bought a '98 M3, with good but dusty brakes, and was thinking about going with Akebono next time I need them.
Aftermarket Brembo rotors for the a W202 are really not very expensive, maybe $50. If you're doing the job yourself, they are almost throwaway items.
I have Akebono's on my 2003 Chrysler Town and Country and my 1997 C280, no complaints. They also seem to last for a long time.
