Hi
Can anyone advise if the front disk brake rotors are fitted as "handed" left and right ?.

I have a pair on order from an after market supplier as opposed to OEM, but the vented fins point in the same direction, so when fitted one set of fins would point to the rear of the car.

Suppliers say that they are not fitted as "handed" parts, is this correct.

That is correct and they will point in different directions, even the Brabus 230 does this

Seems strange they dont have sided discs as one side will be fighting against the wind.suppose it comes down to cost.The only mercs ive seen with sided discs are 129 sl 600 v12 and 210 E55.

Not to feel left out, my handed too ! 91 SL500

This is interesting as they do not seem to be any longer, and it has caused a few fix ups as to whether they have or not
