E420 has fixed calipers. That means the caliper is bolted, and does not move. The pads follow the rotor.

The floating calipers are bolted, but they can moved back and forth to follow imperfections in the rotor.

However floating calipers dont stop very fast, they are found on early model 300Es.

If you prefer to have those brakes, I can trade you.
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
