    Audi S3 brakes???

    Hi all, just need a bit of advice. I am running the Brembo (junior GT) brake package on my 2002 S3 front brakes, and need to desperatly replace the front pads as I am hearing a loud crunching now when I brake! Not good!
    Im considering getting the Ferodo DS pads for the front and similar pads for the rear, even though the back brakes are standard.
    What I need to know are the DS Ferodo pads any good and will they work well with the Brembo calipers and Discs I have already? I do not really want to spend more on Brembo pads if they are equally as good as the Ferodo's.
    Also, are the pads I need the exact same ones that fit the Seat Leon Cupra R, which has Brembo brakes also??? As I am having difficulty finding pads to fit the Brembo calipers.
    Where are the best (and cheapest!) place to buy the pads from???
    Also, are they easy to fit??
    Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
    Thanks!!
