    Small brake upgrade advice on S3 225.

    I recently changed my rear disks and pads to Delphi ones as the rears were very worn and my brakes were never as good as I hoped since I brought the car. Looking now to sort out the fronts and thinking of going for some better pads and disks. Was looking at some EBC "Turbo grooved" disks and EBC Red stuff pads. With a good brake bleed to, I guess this would help me out? I get fade pretty early on at the minute.

    Thanks.

    Tbh mate, if you look at the stickies it'll explain in more depth but standard discs coupled with good pads will see that fade dissapear! Get some ferodo DS2500 pads and some standard discs and you'll be ok. Saves you forking out on expensive discs that may not help anymore than standard discs.
