    brakes

    best brakes to fit on my 2003 model audi s3? is it best just to stick with the standard s3 pads/discs or would an upgrade be better, blackdiamond etc?

    The ferodo ds2500 pads get great reviews. Never had them myself but lots of good feedback. Available from badger5. Discs not so important. Grooved or not is upto you. Also you could change fluid while you are doing the brakes. motul rbf600 is the one to have. Also available from badger 5 i believe
