i drive a 2006/55 A3 2.0T DSG with some minor modifications. no power upgrades yet, although i doubt i'll actually have the money to do any considering i broke i am
i've noticed that my standard brakes are a bit crap, particularly when i'm carrying a few of my mates. i was wondering if there was a moderately priced solution to the problem? something like aftermarket discs and pads which i can get done when my current set are due to be changed?
i've heard mixed opinions about EBC - a feature car in PVW said that EBC greenstuff were perfectly adequate, but they're mostly frowned upon on here. any other solutions? i know Ferodo DS2500 seem popular. what problems would i encounter with aftermarket pads? i'd imagine they don't have contacts for the brake wear sensors so i'll get a brake warning light?
i've seen a Brembo 4-pot front brake upgrade for my car that seems reasonably priced - HOWEVER i have NO knowledge of this subject and i dunno what reasonably priced would be. the brake diameter remains 312mm and i can't seem to find any reference to the kit on the Brembo website
any other ideas chaps (and chapettes)?
