    C32AMG Brake Calipers on an SLK32AMG?

    Has anyone swapped or fitted the AMG brake callipers off a C32 and put them on the SLK32? Or is this just one big headache? :( Any Ideas of cost? It's just that they look so much nicer than the brakes fitted as standard on the SLK32AMG as the calipers fitted are a direct lift off an E-class...

    Coloured Calipers

    Rusty rear calipers

    The front calipers on my 2003 C32 AMG has the usual glossy silver paint finish, and look great. The rears have turned bronze with rust and look really awful. I asked my dealer to take a look whilst it was with them on Friday (for a new intercooler pump) and said the calipers aren't painted...

    What front calipers will fit an SLK32 AMG

    Hi. I want to change my front calipers for something a little more 'showey' (sp?) What calipers (if any) from the MB parts bin will straight swap with what I have now? I love how my brakes work, but on an AMG I think the calipers should be a bit more distinctive than they are on the SLK32. Any...

    Brake calipers

    Anyone got any ideas on how to clean up the Mercedes branded covers on S211 brake calipers ? Only 10 months and already they're looking a bit dull - is it down to using Wonder Wheels ?

    Rusty hubs and calipers

    The look of my wheels tend to be spoilt by the rusty looking disc calipers and hubs. I was thinking about a quick coat of heat resistant black paint. What do you think and would it look really naff if I sprayed the calipers silver? I don't want it to look like a boy racer's car. :)
