this is a tad late, but anyhow:

500E brakes are NOT a direct fit, you will have to replace the entire steering knuckle. The 500E uses R129 components, whereas the 190E doesn't (obviously). Even the 16V only has W124 components.

A better, more cost effective swap would be to go to 400E providing the 2.6 uses 300E brakes as well. I don't know if this is the case.

also bear in mind the offset of the rims...the 7.5" evo II's will NOT fit over the 500E caliper


Yen-Hsen Liem,
