FS: Big brake upgrade kits for 124, 129, 201

Upgrade Kit #1: SOLD
This is a set of four brake calipers from an early 500E. They are remanufactured by TRW and have never been installed. New brake pads and wear sensors are included. These are iron Ate calipers. The front size is 300mm x 28mm, the rear size is 278mm x 24mm.

These will bolt on to any 124 or 201 chassis, all years, all models. The only modification required will be trimming the rear dust shield, and this is only needed if your stock rear rotors are smaller than 278mm (i.e., most 201's, and most diesel or M103 124's). This is a perfect brake upgrade for the 124 or 201, and does NOT have clearance problems with the front ball joint like the smaller (294mm or 295mm) E320/E420/400E brakes do! You will need 16-inch wheels to clear the front calipers.

Sorry, I do not have rotors available for this kit, but I can supply the part numbers you need to order. To buy all four new rotors will cost about $250 total (including S&H) from most WorldPac vendors for a set of 4 standard Brembo, Ate, or Balo rotors.



Upgrade Kit #2: $325 / OBO
I have a different brake upgrade kit for sale also (see photos below), with the same front calipers (but used, not new, and with used pads), new/rebuilt 278mm x 9mm rear calipers & pads (from SL500, not 500E), and new 278x9 rear rotors (but no front rotors). Since 124 wagons (and M104-powered 124 sedans) already have 278x9 rear rotors, this is only an "upgrade" for the W201, and diesel/M103 W124's. The two front rotors you will need to complete this kit are about $70 each from WorldPac vendors. As with the first kit, you will need 16-inch wheels to clear the front calipers.


Upgrade Kit #3:
This is a Brembo big brake kit for you serious horsepower junkies - click this link for full details and photos.

For kit #3, are the rear calipers the same as a 400E? Might be interested in the kit.

LOL, yeah, need the space and $$$. Too much stuff in the garage that I don't plan on using... also selling my Carat wheels & lowering kit. Gotta buy two sets of tires this spring and start saving for the paint job my '87 badly needs. I'm surprised I haven't gotten more bites on brake kit #2, it's a perfect upgrade for any 201, or early 300E/300D... and pretty cheap too. Go figure!

The 400E rear brakes are smaller (278mm x 24mm). The rear brakes in kit #3 are 300mm x 22mm. The front brakes on a 93-95 400E/E420 are 294x25, btw (1992 400E had thinner front brakes, 295x22).

Feel free to email me if you have more questions about any of the kits (just remember that kit #1 is sold, and will be shipped out today).

I'd really like to buy this from you, just bought the car and already blew a lot of money on it, let me see if I can't come up with the money. I will let you know ASAP.

No problem at all. Please keep in mind that if the "big" Brembos are installed on a W124 with a diesel, M103, or early M104 engine... you will also need to swap either R129 knuckles, or late 124 lower control arms, to allow clearance between the 334mm rotors and the ball joint. If you email (or PM) me with the exact year/model you'd install these on, I can tell you for sure if you'd need to swap the knuckles or LCA's. On a 400E/500E, it's a 100% bolt-on.
