    Brake pads for 2.0T non-quattro.

    Wanted to make use of the 30% off at Eurocarparts, anyone know which pads I need for my A3, the online checker gives me too many options, which are best?

    I've heard good things about Pagid, but there's three different options for their front pads and I can't see any obvious difference:

    Pagid Audi | Euro Car Parts UK’s No.1 Car Parts Retailer

    Pagid Audi | Euro Car Parts UK’s No.1 Car Parts Retailer

    Pagid Audi | Euro Car Parts UK’s No.1 Car Parts Retailer
    Does one pack have enough for both sides or just one?

    Your answers are on the links you have supplied...

    The price is per axle, i.e. both sides. There is no difference on the brakes for Quattro or non Quattro models.
    The cheapest ones in the first link don't come with the contact to enable the brake pad warning on the dash so you don't want those. You will need either the ones in the second or third link. I can't see what difference there is in those only the price. It could be the material being harder or softer than each other... Euro Car Parts will be able to tell you if you ring them....

    To be honest unless your ranting it around a track every weekend then the standard Audi brake pads are more than up to the job...
