    Trying to find if any other cars used the same or similar rotors to the W210 E50. From what I can find the rotors are vented 330mm diameter and 28mm thick. The AMG E55 rotors are 334mm x 32mm, so I don't think they will work. Unless anyone can confirm they fit? I'm hoping there is another alternative that fits though because rotors for the E55 are expensive :(

    EPC shows part numbers for the E50 as 210 421 0112 and210 421 0212. For the E55 it shows210 421 1812 and 210 421 1912. So not the same part, you would have to swap calipers to use E55 rotors.

    I think that S600 rotors will work, I'll have a look later tonigh for you.

    Thanks. I pulled up those part numbers as well, but I couldn't cross reference them against anything else. Usually sites like ECS Tuning will be able to pull up the part if you drop in the part number, but I wasn't getting anything. Seems odd that it wouldn't come up if it's the same part for the SL500.

    Checked some specs and it looks like the SL500 rotors are the same dimensions which is awesome! So much cheaper than the brakes for the E55 :D

    Many thanks Silverstar!

    Bringing this back from about a year ago. Pulled the front right wheel off this morning and the marking on the rotor is the same part number given above. The marking on the caliper is 44/32/334. I don't know what the first number is, but I'm assuming the second one is new rotor thickness and the third the rotor diameter? If so, maybe the brakes are the same as the E55? More digging required. Sometimes it's a bit of a PITA to have a car that not many people have.
