Question Details

Good morning. 

07' S550 4matic.  I need to replace the front brakes.  Is there a rotor you recommend besides the OEM?  Can I re use the existing sensors or do I need new ones?  I already bought Akebono brake pads.

Also, I have not received the brake indicator light yet in the dash.

PowerStop/ EBC/ Brembo are all good brands.

 

If the brake warning light has not come on yet, you can reuse the old sensor. If the light comes on, the contact in the sensor is worn and you will need to replace it. Part number: (221.070 221.170)

Keep up updated on how it goes.

Thanks again.  Are there any local sources for the rotors?

I have used Advance Auto in the past and haven't had any issue with their pads and rotors. You may want to order them online and pick it up from the store. You can find 20 or 30% off coupons for advance online.
