Default 316cdi brake disks/rotors

Looking for a set of front disks/rotors for my 316cdi 2003 model.

There is some conflicting info.......
DBA Australia have a set dba566 for all 316cdi's but Protex have 2 different rotors dr566 for 2000/1 models and dr12305 for 2002-6 models only difference I can see in the specs is dr566 has a min thickness of 19.5mm and dr12305 has a min thickness of 19mm.

The dba rotor has a min thickness of 19mm.

Anyone use any of these rotors on their sprinter?

316CDI.
One of my customers purchased DBA rotors and they were only slightly cheaper than MB but they did not have the correct drilling for the retaining screw. Getting them machined for the screw made them dearer than the MB ones. Eric.

I replaced the 4 rotors and pads on my 1999 312D in January, total cost $445 inclunding tax.
I had to remove and measure first because of different combinations, using my vin number meant nothing to Mercedes, I bought parts from a private supplier. Cheers Barry

316cdi,
On my 1999 312d I use RDA 7304 & RDA 7302 Rotors, DB1968 & DB1962 pads, I believe were Bendix. After running in worked well.
Cheers Barry

I got a pair of RDA front rotors $90 delivered, Adb front Pads inc sensors $50 delivered, Merc wanted $224 for a pair of rotors (not a bad price for Merc) $216 for pads & $40 for a pair of sensors.

Cheers Al
