Some ppl will say it's good. Some ppl will say it's no good.

Very subjective .. better to try for yourself

I have been on ebc-red for years in another ride with slotted disc. I have no complains even though that ride has 240 horses

But B seems to have very limited choice

I reckon the costs of such upgrades would be steep for MB in general ... I rather spend the money on nice AMG rims or something more aesthetically noticable  :lol:


Some pple may differ otherwise and say better brakes is for safety ... but C&C also mentioned that the new models have some braking assist function via proximity sensor if u are too close to the car in front of you .. i think that is adequate enough for my purposes ba .. plus put ECO mode so as to limit my spirited driving tendency  :D

If we are talking about just upgrading of brake pads or even discs .... as long as we put some effort to source it ourselves, the costs is far cheaper than what u will pay at seeNsee for an original set


i have always done mine, can have very good full set for less than just a front pair at AD ... plus significant savings in labour costs and waiting time

besides offering better bite power .. what most will like is the significant reduction of brake dust


for slotted/perforated disc, i dunno why others will choose to have it, i only go for the aesthetics part of it :)   esp. if already upsized the rims with fewer spokes
