Best thing to do is put 2.6 front brakes on, they come standard with vented discs.

If I recall correctly. No 190's had vented discs on the rear.

I may be wrong however as I regularly am.

Yeah sorry I misread that, thought you said front brakes, +1 with what Stwat said, at least all the versions had solid rear discs, not sure about the cosworths.

I know the rear brake caliper on a cossie is the same as a w124, i dont remember if it was vented.

Nah they're not vented normally, the only vented rear brakes you'll find on a merc of that period is off early e320 Estates (W124)

You'll also need a larger brake shield for them too.

The fronts do more of the effective braking, so uprating those might be a good step if they have not already been modified.

Unless you're taking the car for track days, I think the standard brakes should be sufficient? Even on track days, using a competition brake fluid and pads should be enough. In reference to the 2.0L
