Brake rotor tech question

The stock rotors on my C230 are solid disks. I would like to know if the vented rotors from a C280 will work on my car. I have 16" MB sport rims, so clearance shouldn't be a problem. I understand that the C280 rotors are a larger diameter, but are they a different thickness than the C230? Will they work with the C230 hub and calipers? Are there disadvantages to using the larger rotor in front? (such as messing up proportioning valve settings, handling during braking, etc?) Thanks as always for any tech help!
