    When my turn comes up, I was thinking either standard or something from EBC. Brembo are OK but I don't notice much with just their pads...

    If you have done a set of pads the discs are prob shot as well, i have just done 50k and the disc's are on borrowed time. OEM is best unless you are hyper tuned :-)

    Mine did 65k and still had abit left on them. With that in mind if vowed to pay the extra and get the OEM ones as it's not a bad deal given those miles!

    I think pads are roughly 90 and discs 100 each......

    I supply Pagid discs and pads as a reliable alternative to Gen Audi.

    For example 312mm front discs and pads for a 03 TT are 89.99

    Give me a ring for exact costs.

    I can confirm that the pagids are good...I had them fitted as part of warranty works last week, and they have dramatically improved quality of braking...no squeal, or fade,or any other problems...don't think you will go too far wrong...

    Oh ps... You want the 345mm/30 not the 312mm if you are fitting to a 3.2Q... :-)
