You also have to realize that the ML is an suv, suv's are heavier and there fore use a lot more brake on even the slightest stop. Be happy that you do not drive a ford expedition,that suv goes through brakes and rotors quicker than a semi. The e500 will also run through its first set of pads quickly, those stock pads give ultimate stopping power,but lack longevity, try not to hot dog that sweet v8 because the dealer might try and make you pay for new rotors at the first brake service. They claim that the w211 brakes generate so much heat that one can "easily" warp the rotors.
