    Hi,
    So, little update:
    Just passed 28,000 miles on my 15 month old C63 estate and the brake pads are in need of a change.
    I have no issue doing this myself as I have replaced pads on my Porsche and old B7 RS4 myself, all of which use variants of the Brembo Monoblock caliper system.
    The question is, does anyone have any recommendation for OEM parts suppliers that know what they sell and what they are talking about.
    Any advice would be greatfully recieved.
    Thanks
    Jack
    P.S. Just about to put on the 5th set of rear tires, again going to go with Continental 5P's. They have been great in the wet and the dry and give a delicious blend of feel, grip and slip ;)

    Sounds about right allowing for approx 6k miles from new tyres.
