So i'm fitting pads and discs all around the E350.

ECP is quoting just one option of fitment for pads, great. But for the discs, there are two options for my car that is the one "without AMG and without sports pack".

The main difference in the fitment is the diameter, which is 295 and 322 mm.

How big a deal is that? I would assume there is just a bit more excess/unused metal on the larger diameter.

Both selected discs and pads are Pagid.

One of them fits , the other doesn’t , just measure your existing discs

It could hit the inside of the caliper.

Wow, some difference in price between Euro Car Parts and Car Parts 4 Less.

£305 vs £227 for the same basket...

Just bite the bullet and buy OE. You know they'll fit & they won't 'warp' .... been there with pattern discs in the past.

What happens to the ECP basket when you put MOT2020 in the discount code section??

Once you have the correct size always worth asking MB what their price is for genuine you might get a surprise

Use “Honey” and it try’s every code under the sun (and a few more)...

Is that just an ECP thing buddy ?
No, it’s a “plug-in” for your browser (I use Chrome) it then automatically tries all the best discount codes.
It works on quite a lot of sites not just ECP

I donno lads, I'll try them tomorrow but I won't be forking out. I'd say pattern is just fine, no?

Oh.. that thing. I won't be installing that at all lol. I have no interest in sharing all my browsing history with them. Ideally I would run it out of a VM just in order to grab the code...actually that's a good idea.
