Well I just scored a pair of four pot calipers off of a '93 W124 V8, I plan on replacing my current single piston calipers on my '88 CE, I have purchased the rotors (cross drilled) to match the new calipers and a s/s hose kit for the lines.

I will post pix of my upgrade in a few days.........

Hmm, that sounds like something I should do for my TE when my rotors need replacing in the future. One thing I would highly recommend for any w124 owner is to replace the rubber flex lines with braided stainless flex lines, they feel more responsive and have a quicker action and there is less fade under heavy braking. While your at it go for the ATE blue racing brake fluid :).

I'd be interested to know if you will have to replace the spindle... it would be very typical of mercedes if you didn't as they tend to stick with a good piece of engineering across models.
