    are these worth a go?

    you'd have to inform your insurers for a start.

    drilled holes tend to crack easier over cast in holes.

    groves can be noisy and act as a cheese grater to your pads.

    as for fitting, you can only go on what they say.

    About a 1.5 hours labour, depends who you use. I'd use a local independent garage for work like that rather than a dealer or specialist.

    Doesn't say who they're made by - wouldn't buy anything as important as brakes from a manufaturer I'd never heard of!

    They look like EBC Turbogroove discs to me. You can e the drilled holes are not completely through and ae spotted. Iv'e got these on my S3 and are a great improvement over standard!

    They're the wrong colour for brand new EBC Turbogrooves - they come with a goldy finish which wears off as they bed in. Unless the ones in the pic are used of course!

    I managed to fit front discs & pads in 1.5 hrs last weekend and that included looking for my tools! So I would have thought professionals would be able to do it in under an hour. There's not much to it.

    Have a go yourself they're easy to do as long as you have access to a tool for winding in the calipers.

    I replaced my rear discs and pads today and it took about 45 mins. Mines only a 1.6 A3 and I didn't go for vented discs etc, I just replaced them for standard which cost 43 in total for the discs and pads.

    Re: would these brake discs be worth a go?

    okay thanks guys...

    i might have to take Pontio up on his offer because i don't have my tools up here in London (they're all at my parents' place in Plymouth!) and my driveway isn't really suitable.

    where's the best (read cheapest) place to buy standard replacement discs and pads for the front?


    cheers,
    matt.
