    Default Bolt on Big Brake Kit For around 300$.

    I've put the info in the comments on one of the fb group discussions and decided to put it here for everyone else.

    This is a 13" BBK that is completely bolt on with no modifications except for cutting of the heat shield.

    What is needed:
    Calipers:
    -Mercedes benz 220 s-class 4 piston calipers. Something like a 00 or 01 model s430/s500.
    -Here is a link to a current auction.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/DAP-W220-MER...97c73b&vxp=mtr

    Rotors:
    -2012 Mercedes Benz R-class rotors. There 330mm tall and 32mm thick.
    -They can be purchased on rock auto drill and slotted for like 70$ each(something like that Dont know exact numbers) or blank for cheaper. Also available at any other auto parts store as well.
    -Yes the bolt pattern is 5x112. The R-class, GL-class, and ML-class all use bigger wheel bolts which allow the rotors to slide on no problem.

    Hub centric rings:
    - You will need 60mm ID to 67mm OD hub centric rings.
    - Reason the rotors will not be centered. Use the rings and then the rotors will be centered thus preventing any alignment issues.

    Caliper bolts:
    - Mercedes Benz 220 caliper bolts.
    - They are different threads than the mk3 calipers.
    -link

    Washers:
    - 4-5mm of washers
    - Reason is the caliper needs to be spaced out slightly to be centered on the rotors.


    -----The calipers use the same exact bolt spacing as our cars. With the rotors mounted the calipers need to be spaced out a little bit to line up with the rotor perfectly.

    -----The stock brake lines and banjo bolts are bolt on as well. I would recommend getting new crush washers and preferably thicker ones as the bolt can bottom out inside the caliper which would prevent it from sealing.

    -----The stock backing plate/dust shield will need to be trimmed off or bent out of the way by a good amount as the larger rotors sit father back and are taller.

    -----Also be aware that these calipers will not fit on every wheel. They need a higher offset wheel or something with concave disc like a te37 or something like that. My xxr521 +25 18/10 would not fit with these calipers.

    -----Thats about it. Everything bolts on like when doing a standard brake job.


    Heres some pics.

    Prolly not. That will have basically the same face. Would need to go higher and even then im not sure if any of the 521 would fit since they have such a flat disc.
