    If you use your car for general use then just get standard discs and good pads (as mentioned above). Not much point in expensive discs unless you take it for track days or just like the look/feel of big, expensive brakes.

    Im just running standard discs with Mintex pads, forgotten which pads exactly but they were about £100

    I'm just running Pagid discs and pads on mine, and have no complaints. It's a standard S3 setup.

    On my old A3 TDI quattro with 288mm discs, I did run a set of DS2500 pads and they were very impressive and improved the bite and feel over std ones.

    I just haven't felt the need to change the S3 setup though, but then again I don't do track days etc.
