    I have some of these for my CL203.
    If I can get some more, inc discs/carriers etc, does anyone know if they will fit onto a W245 (with 18" AMGs)?
    Many thanks
    Matt

    Will answer the question myself- upon studying the sport pack calipers which are quite deep/fat and the B-class current setup, I am convinced that these will not fit as there is very little clearance between the inner wheel face and the disc ( the existing B-class caliper piston is on the inner side of the disc).

    How much and where did you get the sport pack brakes from? (if you don't mind me asking) I would be interested in upgrading my setup... I have CL203.

    Got them from a breakers in Romford after following up on an ebay ad. Very helpful guy. Got the whole leg off each front side (shock, coil, discs, calipers, pads, hub) for £100 per side off an 07 car, which I thoought was fairly reasonable. Getting the brakes (at least) fitted next week.
    Sent you link for him!

    Agreed- he even had thermotronic panel I wanted.

    Apparently he has a contact/ brother who has done a MOST conversion on a pre-facelift coupe- I thought it was just Sunil & Miro who had done that sort of thing!

    -As you do!

    When I went 2 weeks ago, he was doing an automatic box retrofit into a manual car...
    It did get me thinking- only a little ! ( I have manual car) but not sure what kind of warranty there would be!

    Can confirm that the sport brakes fit on my C-coupe(CL203) car with standard Evo 17" wheels without any mods. There is a small amount(just enough) of clearance between the caliper body & the inner wheel.

    wheelwell help, please

    Can anyone help re: spare wheel, please?
    I know a few have done the sport brake upgrade & also changed spare for full size...
    I have temporarily a full sized 17" steel spare in my boot, but would like to tuck it away.
    Is there a replacement wheelwell that will fit a full size oem alloy wheel?
    If not, which wheel well do I need to fit a 17" spacesaver?

    Many thanks for help,
    Matt
