Upgrading Brakes for a W124 E320

Does anyone have any ideas on a brake upgrade. My rims are the Evos from Bekkers 8.25x17. Could I get OEM parts from another Merc with bigger stock brakes, cross drill them and put them on?

Any ideas other than the typical Bembo Big Brake kit would be appreciated.

You Might Want to Try the C32 AMG Front brake set up!I Upgraded The Front Brakes on My C230k coupe and my w210 wagon they work Great...And They are Factory Mercedes AMG!
Then Install Crossdrilled rear rotors,some steel braided flex hoses ,and Porterfields ..Big Difference! They should fit with your wheels but please contact Randall @Autowerksexpress.com
Autowerksexpress.com has them on special ..

and that's just the front or all 4 corners? Shoot, for 800 it's a damn good deal considering it's a perfect alternative to Brembos!

I actually found them for $650 for the fronts. Do a search on the Callandra forum.
