    Disk / Pad thickness question - also aftermarket pads?

    Hi all,

    Ive searched the threads but cant find an answer to this!

    My 3.2 front brakes are looking a little worn. My question is what is the minimum thickness for both front and rear disks and pads? (I dont have a manual for the car).

    Finally, if I do need disks ill get them from GSF as they are half the price of Audi. However I have read that I should go for Audi pads. What are peoples opinions of EBC pads - I notice they dont sell Green-Stuff for my car- is that because its too powerful?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi,

    How many miles did you get out of the pads and discs originally?

    I am going to get roughly 60k out of mine so have opted to pay double the price of the GSF stuff to get something I know I will be happy with......

    The OEM stuff is quite cheap if they last 60k imo.......

    Hi

    I bought the car a year and a half ago - and dont have any receipts for discs/pads - so I dont know unfortunately. I bought the car at 59k - and its got 71k now. The discs have a small lip on them - so thats why I need to nkow the minimum thickness - as they might not need changing for a good few miles yet.

    I do agree it's certainly worth paying extra if they are better quality. I generally prefer getting all genuine parts if possible - although I did get my GF's mini some carbon steel front discs from GSF last year - and I was very impressed with those.

    Thanks,
