Okay, I am a straggler in the rotor group buy - just had my 40k service done and need brakes/rotors...but WHICH ROTORS?!

I am ashamed to admit that I don't have the tools necessary to remove the wheel and simply look for a P/N or measure... I'm hoping that a more-knowledgeable Dubber can help:

2001 old-style B5 GLX 4Motion Variant
relevant VIN 3B2 1E0

Front rotors - 288mm or 312mm? (I *think* 288)
Rears - standard 245mm or some kind of 4mo-only special rear rotors?

I want to do the S_Klass group buy, but want to be sure I get the right parts -- any help would be greatly appreciated -- THANKS!

To check without any fancy tools, take two straightedges like two rulers and hold them flat across opposite edges of the rotor through the wheels. then have a friend measure between the straightedges on the outside of the wheel while you are holding them.
Great suggestion! This explains why I am not an engineer -- thanks!

00Psst - does the Bentley make any mention of different rear discs for the '01 4Mo Wagon? Thanks for the help, I appreciate it!

No group buy then for me most likely :sad:

Luckily, ECS pricing is still quite reasonable.

Thanks for the help! Now to confirm with some nifty measurement techniques...

Varies Widely

Okay - I manufactured a caliper measuring tool:
288mm fronts
245mm rears
