    The knowledge that your wheels will fit over them, and that no additional carriers are required.

    Indeed!
    And if the carriers don't fit the knuckle, will the SL knuckle fit the car?

    I don't think wheels will be an issue.

    Arent the carriers almost as expensive as the calipers? I hope you have a big budget for your big brakes.

    They usually go hand in hand.

    Anybody into upgrades on this forum?

    I'm upgrading my brakes on my W202 to C32 AMG ones. I know of a guy in the States who fitted 6 pots to his W202 but he made custom carriers to the tune of $1700.

    You may find it easier fitting the 6 pots instead as they might (I'm guessing) clear the steering knuckle better because they're smaller.
