    The SLS china didn't have an option to come with a V8. So either you are talking about the V6 model or you have a STS and not a SLS which was only available in china.

    You need to look at the RPO sticker in the trunk to determine what brake package you have.

    J56 - high performance Brembo brakes for the V model and performance summer package STS

    JE5 - performance brakes

    JL9 - standard brakes

    Not knowing your location but www.brakeperformance.com is where I got my full set of rotors and pads (the pads even came with rubber boots to replace the old ones around the caliper pins.)

    If you are doing your own replacement keep in mind the upper and lower caliper pins are NOT the same you must put them back in their original locations.

    The OP is in Qatar, UAR. The car could have come from anywhere. We'll have to wait for clarification.

    Luda,
    the early / "pre-facelift" 2006/7 to 2009 China-SLS's were available with the 4.6L N*...this "first" SLS was also available and marketed in the Middle East...
    ...btw, brakes...no (6 lug) J56 Brembos on SLS...only 5 lug (...the calipers look like JE5...)

    V8 Northstar China SLS:




    ...and here a...

    Middle East Model (Dubai) SLS ( "Made in China" ) -source: GM Ad-

    Quote:
    In 2006, Cadillac introduced a stretched STS called the SLS. It is assembled by Shanghai GM, and in 2007 it was shown at the Middle East International Motor Show in Dubai. The SLS adds 3.9 inches (99.1 mm) of rear-seat legroom and has a different interior with higher quality materials.

    For the 2007 model year, the Chinese market received the Cadillac SLS. Compared to the STS, the SLS has a longer wheelbase, unique interior appointments, and a near-identical exterior appearance. Engine choices are the 2.8-liter V-6, 3.6-liter V-6 (the non-direct-injection version shared with the 2005-2007 STS V-6), and the same 4.6-liter Northstar V-8 as in the STS V-8.

    The Chinese-Spec SLS received a facelift at the end of 2009, and was sold as a 2010. The grill, bumper and many other details were revised. Shanghai-GM also introduced the OnStar system to the model. Two SIDI engines were introduced, a 272 hp 3.0L and a 310 hp 3.6L.

    The 2.0L Turbo L4-cylinder was introduced for MJ 2011, the 3.6L SIDI was dropped for 2012...

    PontiacV8 ... You always have great info.
    Makes me want to import a Dubai SLS w/ the 4.6L just to get their better interior and to have the extra room would be a huge plus too.

    I also thought about importing an SLS but from what I gather on the Canadian Government website, this is not an option. I'd love to have one of those!

    If you share your VIN we can properly identify what parts you will need.

    ...I don't think this will work for a China-made SLS.....

    LSGDE53B9AH077325

    Can someone translate that sticker for me? I can't read Chinese.
    I can guess at what some of it says but certainly not all of it.

    Neither do I... (but the shown specifications are metric...and this cars "Automobile Fuel Consumption Label" got the same data)

    - LF1 is the "engine model"/type (发动机型号) - (LF1 3.0 liter HF V6 SIDI engine),
    - 2.997 L is the "engine displacement" (发动机排量) - (2.997 liter or 2997 cc or approx. 183 cui),
    - 203 kW is the "engine rated power" (发动机额定功率) - approx. 276 PS or 272 hp...the engine is listed with 200 kW / 272 PS / 269 hp...
    - 09-11 should be the MFD DATE...November 2009 for MY 2010 (VIN "A" ) (制造年月 - manufacture year-month)
    - "number of seats" (座位数) : 5...this car is a five-seater
    - ...and 2325 kg (kilogram) is the "gross vehicle weight" (最大设计总质量) - (1905 kg / 4200 lbs is the official base "curb weight" (整备质量))

    车辆识别代号 denotes "VIN"
    整车型号 denotes "Vehicle Type" (SGM7307ATA)

    (...I also used the google translation on some of the words from the chinese website where the SLS images came from... )
