Hey, so I wasn't seeing things!

Just recently I saw the same exact thing.  I just caught a glimpse of the drilled rotors right before the car pulled away from the light.  I had to do a double take, as the car looked to be brand new and driven by someone that didn't look like an enthusiast at all.

I guess if a car comes stock with drilled rotors, it's okay because the brake system is designed for the reduced mass of the perforated disks versus solid ones.  I would imagine MBZ took care of any cracking issues, from what I understand about their engineering.
