    more brake help please

    Hi All,

    I need new pads and discs for my S3 and was wondering what to get. If possible I want to get something slightly better than the standard set up but can't really afford anything too expensive. I have read a few of the recent threads and have to admit to being a bit confused. I was going to go for the EBC red stuff and turbo groove disc thingies but recently read that the pads themselves might be an improvement over standard with not much additional benefit to be gained from the turbo groove discs.

    So, what do you think - options (pads only, pads and discs etc.), benefits over standard and approximate cost?

    I am just looking for something that will stop the car slightly better.

    Thanks in advance,

    B1

    bigger brakes will decrease stopping distance, pad and disc choice will only effect brake fade

    try richa3turbo on this forum for all your braking needs he's got lots in his shop
