Took a few months! Mostly because the shop was very busy doing other work, so I waited and waited and waited badly for this moment and here it is:

You can't beat Alcon brakes got them on the Audi and they are unbelievable, stops on a dime as they say. Your mods look great a real nice useful addition :thumb:

I don't think much of the axle stands;)

Haha, good eye! Those blocks support the stock calliper.

Thank you. Took a while to get this one done since we first spoke about it! Will see if ML has enough brake fluid to push those pistons. Alcon were quite positive about it though!

Alcon are one of the best companies I have dealt with, had a problem on one of the Audi rear Calipers when I first bought it their customer service, technical advice and parts dispatch were second to none, was a pleasure dealing with them, if only all companies could be that helpful.

Thank god for that - I honestly thought for a minute that you had it propped up on a couple of bits of "four by two"!:D

They look the dogs.....


12 piston? I can only see 6. What bits are you painting?

I'm gonna paint callipers acid green and lettering bright yellow and.. Only joking!
Bells and bolts/nuts will be painted black as per Brabus' specs so it eventually looks something like this:

that's a heck of a lot of pistons ..

my CLS only has 8 on the front

SWMBO Audi A8 only has 6 pot and that's running over 400 bhp, 12 pots are absolutely gorgeous. I looked at Alcon when I was doing the brakes on the CLK but could not justify the cost. I went for a complete caliper refurb with AP Racing for a fraction of the cost. Not in the Alcon league I admit but very capable of stopping 270 bhp very quickly.
