I would look at your local autoparts stores.....advanced, oreillys or autozone. Wagner and Bendix are very nice.

Dealers have 2 grades of replacement brake pads: Value Line and OEM as installed in factory. Value Line is a lower grade, but you have to ask or the parts dept. may be silent about this minor fact.

Value line are ~ $75 per axle and the OEM factory style are about $175 per axle. Both prices seem ridiculous to me.

I'll look at another suitable replacement, e.g., Wagner Thermoquiet. They are about $65 per axle at Advance Auto and have a lifetime limited warranty.

I got warever rotors and wagner thermo quites for the front for $100 at advanced auto. Try promo code "VISA" on the advanced.com website...it was 30% off when I bought them about a week ago.

I will as soon as I can afford the complete package. I'm about to call a Mercedes dealer to see how much it would cost to turn the rotors if need be but I hear of people putting mile and miles on the rotors without warping.

Value Lines are $50 a set, that dealer was trying to rape you. VLs aren't necessarily lower quality, they just aren't approved/signed off on by the Mopar Engineering group. And they come with a lifetime warranty.
