What options do I have for upgrading the front discs on a 300e 4matic, I assume the rear brakes can be upgraded to 400e spec, but since there was no 400e 4matic, is there a way to get better binders in the front.

It has 15 8-hole alloys now, will I need to swap to the 16 alloys to fit the upgraded brakes?

Thanks in advance

'91 4matic

The 400E had the same 15" wheels as the 6-cyl W124's. Hence, 400E brakes will fit under the usual "8-hole" 15" wheels. If you go with 500E brakes then 16" wheels will be required. When ordering 400E brakes make sure you get the 93 and later "update". The early 92's were a bit prone to warpage. (search Shop Forum archives for further specifics)

Hope this helps...Lee

Thanks for the information re the wheel sizes. One more question, will the 400e rotors(discs) mount on the 300e 4matic front hubs?
