Stick with OE or OEM on Mercedes for best results. I had great luck with Textar and ATE.


Don't forget to get the wear sensors if your C class has them.

I installed ATE Powerslot Rotors & Mintex Red Box Pads on the Jetta many moons ago and they were great.

The rears were Brembo blanks & Red Box as well.

I always liked the stopping power.

I just ordered OEM parts from a site that I am now so aggravated with I don't want to give them any exposure. I appreciate all the input. Hopefully the installation process isn't a nightmare.

Do you have internal drum brakes for the emergency brake?
Get your battle plan and parts together first - all materials.

Which rotor? It is a dice game nowadays - no guaranties.
