One thing to keep in mind. Some newer cars use the ABS system to supply electronic brake force distribution. I think the goal is to use the rear brakes more during normal braking, evening out the wear between front & rear. By moving some of the braking from front to back, front brake life is extended, rear brake life is reduced, and both can be replaced at the same time. One result would be fewer total shop visits for the car. Dunno if MB uses this technology, but it seems to be pretty common in midpriced cars with ABS.
