Looking for the definitive answer from someone who has actually done this

I have read so many articles on using w126 560 front brakes, discs and callipers and some say this is a direct bolt on?

has anyone done this and is it that easy?

also what about brake hoses , do they need changed or do they match the original callipers and bolt right up?

what about Master cylinder ? do you need to swap to the w126?

will the original servo be ok?

i am using 16" steel Mercedes wheels so should be good for using the 300mm brake disc size from the 560..

any thoughts about a bolt on upgrade rear?

i noticed when AMG recently built a Silver Pig race car based on a 300sel 6.3 they actually used what looked like an original rear brake set up, likely hi performance pads and vented discs.. looked like original callipers though (to my surprise rear wheels had wheel spacers, sorry getting off the point)
