I used to drive a 1970s Mercedes-Benz LS 1418 truck for a friend of mine. It was fitted (as standard equipment) with an exhaust brake that was simply a butterfly valve in the exhaust manifold. It was pneumatically operated by a button on the floor. It was so effective that with careful driving it was not often necessary to use the service brakes.

Can anyone see a reason why it might be a problem to fit a similar device to a 307 HDI? It would cut down pad and rotor replacements enormously.
