i saw a 2010 c300 today with sweet ass perforated rotors and calipers with "mercedes benz" etched on the side all fancy-like. can these be obtained for my car, which is over half my age? of course, i would need some bitchin' 18's (oem or replica, no doubt) to show off those bad boys, but i like thinking ahead.

Wow, maybe you can get one of those sweet-ass digital cameras and post some bitchin' pictures.

Btw, I can't wait to see what the perforated calipers look like -- were they red? was it blood?

(sorry... no offense meant -- just yanking your chain a little)

What you saw were laser etched AMG rotors, a new nuance in the MB high performance world.

Zinc plated cross-drilled rotors (no etching) for standard W210's are easily sourced affordably thru eBay and the like. Those do bring up a wow factor a bit, perfomance is sold too.

However, you would have to figure a way to get the etching done - sorry, I don't have that laser equipment.

Keep the faith

haha, i was halfway mocking myself since i'm so adamant about keeping my car stock... but these were really eye catching. no they were not red. :) fab, thanks for the tip. i'll keep my eyes peeled.

as a matter of fact, i did take a bitchin' cell phone "pic". but there isn't much to see, as it takes godawful pictures. use your imagination!
