Brake upgrade with R107 parts
« on: January 19, 2024, 21:02:43 »
Has anyone upgraded their front brakes, It  looks like  the R107 vented twin pot fitted to a 450 might work. I have also thought that 320 4 pot might work too if the upright fits and the steel wheel would clear. Could possibly go to 15” rims if necessary.

I am unaware of anyone using R107 parts or what the similarity of those brakes to the others offered in the lineup, but I do know that some people have upgraded the brakes to those offered on the W126 using some kind of adapter. I haven't gone down that path myself, but this is worthy of research.
