    Audi don't make any brake parts themselves bud there made by ate and stamped with Audi logo,if you buy ate pads in many cases you can actually see where the Audi logo has been covered or removed.

    When fitting anything onto a hub of a vehicle where it be discs, pads or the alloy, you apply something called "copper grease" it'll prevent corrosion and that item from seizing, as for the pads it will also eliminate the chance of vibration in the calliper, never put a hub back together without copper grease could save you the time of having to rebuild it because something is squealing.

    I've found Mintex to be pretty good with OEM equivalent.

    My pagid disc and pad combo on my last car was faultless.
    I like the fact that the non service areas of the disc are painted
    so they don't go rusty 2 weeks after fitting. Even during and after
    a damn good thrashing round Castle Combe they never made a sound.

    K&N panelfilter, Colourmatched mirrors, S3 footplate,
    More to come....
