    Brake Pad Replacements - (Fronts)

    Good Evening people. (I did search but it didnt give me any exact links / dims etc)

    Replacing my standard 2002 BAM S3 brakes at the weekend with some new pads...


    Will these fit? - anybody?

    FRONT Brembo Brake Pads AUDI A3 (8L1) S3 quattro 10/01 | eBay



    If not, will somebody shed some light and provide a link of some standard one's I'll be ok with buying.


    Thanks,

    Joe

    Opposed to "Standard ones" buying them external... Is there specific dimensions you need to follow or are you just following the reg year etc for guidance.

    Could somebody please post a link for some VAG bog standard ones as there milillions to choose from.


    Thank you.

    If your looking to uprate your pads I would recommend ebc red stuff.
    I have them and they were a great little upgrade if your not going for lcr brembos setup and looking for a bit more bite.

    I did a in-depth guide a while ago back including replacing discs. It'll be somewhere on here. Type my forum name on search function.

    Oops... Just realised you meant, which pads to replace with, and not how to replace.

    I went with Black Diamond Predator Pads. I huge improvement over standard pads. Cost me £64.99 for full front set. Decided not to buy cheap pads and discs as they are the only thing that stops your car although mines running a bit mire power that standard.
