    Get Mintex ones off of eBay. See here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-S3-MINTEX...item35a132c463

    Good if you're 'on a budget'! lol. Not heard anything bad at all about mintex pads, I plan to get some myself next week.

    i used several different brands with my A3...mintex included....you know what? for wear and braking the OEM did a better all round job than any i had...granted i wasnt using black diamonds, but for the price OEM in my experience are hard to beat

    But Ł114.21 collected vs Ł55.99 delivered is a big difference (especially if you're lazy like me).... I'm going to give them a blast and see what they're like.

    i only tried them on my A3 so can only assume the same.... but i would say they OEM's seemed to last twice as long for me and didnt suffer from fading nowhere near as much....might be different for the S3, although i dont pay full OEM price

    that said we do have a resident Audi garage that will post don't we?

    A chap had a nice set on his TT yesterday, he mentioned that you can get drilled & vented 300mm discs with brackets that use the original callipers, you can get them from the TT shop for Ł300 it looked really good on, and gives you less nosedive on hard braking.

    I would of thought so.... Brake balance would be a bit out!

    discs here for Ł19 each.

    pads here for Ł14 a set.

    Delivery is pretty reasonably cheap too.

    I had a pair of mintex pads once and i didn't like them. They used to fade and wear very quickly but i did drive quite hard. I supose if your not going to drive like a looney (but still under the speed limit)like me then its worth a try.

    I have also heard that the OEM ones are pretty decent too, if you are running standard power.

    Nilz i tried several different brands over the years to cut costs on mine.. the difference between OEM was immense...altho never compared against the likes of greenstuff which would have been interesting

    Hmmm, know what you mean, I have thought about upgrading to the various other brands etc, but dont really see the point, if what I have does the job already at a decent price.

    I bought Mintex discs / pads for my front & they seem to perform better than standard & theres less dust. I also need to do my rear discs / pads in the next few weeks, i was going to go for Mintex however Rosses link to VWspares seems pretty reasonable, Ł33 all in. The rear last for years anyway !

    UPDATE - Just went to VWspares added all to cart & after delivery & VAT its Ł45.00 think i ll go with the mintex set Ł56.00 delivered.
