I beat the CRAP out of my wagon on the street-the brakes are up to it. NO WAY you should be warping rotors, period. So, I'm thinking you have a stuck caliper upfront-that's where you need to focus. If not, then perhaps your master cylinder is not allowing all pressure to release (unlikely, though)

500E calipers require different hubs, BTW. But I seriously doubt you'd need to upgrade-just fix the excellent brakes you already have. And if front caliper rebuilds don't get you what you want, try cryotreating your rotors-worked for me (I was boiling & warping rotors at track events in my 500E)
