    up to you fella.....unless you feel the need for more stopping power, id go with OEM, but loads on here will disagree....

    If your gonna stay OEM, find a cheap garage that will fit genuine Audi parts.... i used a few off the shelf discs on my old A3 and nothing compared to OEM.... i never went for performance bits like black diamond though

    If your ever near Chesterfield i can recommend a really good cheap garage, the fella who owns it is ex Audi and seems to get parts cheaper than trade so will do full fitment at very competitive price

    Fitted a set of Mintex Front Discs and Pads at the weekend (as per S3Steve) and they are spot on for 73.00 delivered you can't find cheaper or better.

    I've got a set of Brembo OE Replacement's on my A3 at 288mm and they are very good, I found an improvement from the OEM ones.

    Have a scan around. The Mintex S3 Front pads and discs are 75 + delivery, the same ones for the TT are 65 + delivery and the ones for the Skoda VRS are 70 + delivery and they ARE ALL THE BLOODY SAME!!!

    I just picked up today some 312mm ATE Powerdiscs. 52 quid each from EuroCarParts.

    They stopped making them a while ago and I got one of the last sets. Woooohooo!
