    Sound job mate, do you think OEM discs will be alright or is it best to get an aftermarket set for these pads??

    bought mine from same place: eurocarperformance

    cant fault the price, but they didnt send the discs out until i phoned them up nearly a week later! apart from that, faultless.

    I got mine from Bill at Badger 5 (he's also occasionally on the forum as he has an S8)
    http://www.badger5.co.uk/

    I've got EBC Ultimax grooved discs (on Bill's recommendation) and DS2500's front and rear on mine.

    worth getting the uprated discs IMO because the Ferrodos are a harder wearing pad and in my opinion you need harder wearing discs to get the most out this setup

    Thanks guy for the advice. looking at the prices....
    F**K me they are dear, Is it worth paying ths sort of money for the pads and uprated discs? will it improve the breaking enough to bother or shall I just stay stock? IMO the standard breaks are ****e!!

    the standard brakes are really crap and you will see why if you get the uprated discs and Ferrodo pads! bit pricey (300 approx for both) but i think it is worth it. Brakes can save your life. I should of uprated to above setup a long time ago.

    I was told standard pads&discs are more than fine for rears, if you were considering uprated rear parts, as not much breaking is done at the back,

    i think on OEM discs are more prone to warp, im a engineer by trade. The advice that i was given is do the rears for looks because they dont do much for braking efficiency. The most is done by the fronts because of all the weight there when braking

    Go for it, you wont be dissapointed mate

    i would of guessed probably more as its better quality gear and harder wearing. I.e. less effort by the braking system to produce the stopping distances

    I have DS2500's and OEM discs up front, padgit pads and GSF discs in the rear. Rears don't need up rating but padgit std pads are nice and GSF do them at a good price.

    I also have Motul RBF600 fluid (also from Bill) and I have to say the brakes are so much better all of the time over the original setup.... you can brake hard with no fade and great stopping power... pulls your face off...

    I will say that I don't track or 'race on private roads' as such, I do make full use of my uprated suspensions at legal speeds on back roads but the brakes are great for when I need them.

    Next best thing before a brembo upgrade.

    I am gonna replace the front discs with Black Diamonds or EBC Ultimax when they are due though...

    Now got an S6 -more fun

    DS2500's or DS3000's for track use..
    118 for DS2500's, and 129 for DS3000's for stock 312mm disk fitment.

    Ultimax grooved disks work well in combination with DS2500's

    Depends on use, but where stock pads are consummed in no time under duress, the DS2500's have lasted significantly longer on LCR users, most of whome run DS2500's on their cars

    balance of pad sweap and noise and wear.

    Makes me recall one of the Autometrix Castle Combe trackdays a while ago - I was at Camp watching you go round in the S8. You were the only one taking a proper racing line through the corner and using the width of the track.

    Some bloke next to me turns to his friend and says 'That guy in the S8 doesn't know what he's doing - look, he's nearly loosing it on the corner every time he comes round...' Sigh!
