    Rear Discs & pads worn - advice pls

    Hi all,

    Looking at these pics, how much would you say I had left on my rear discs/pads? Might be hard to tell but any opinions would be a great help.

    Audi did a free winter health check and said my discs & pads were almost metal to metal. Took one of my rear wheels off to check my disc size and they didn't look that low. Bear in mind though I have zero experience but thought I would post this to get some feedback.
    Many thanks

    Would change them ASAP Otherwise they will start eating into the disk and you'll have to replace them too! Such a cheap & easy job to do aswell, not worth missing

    Rear Discs & pads worn - advice pls

    Cheers lads that enough for me. Might as well do both and forget about it.

    There are some good Brembo disc & pad combos about.

    Any other recommendations for good brakes?

    I guess the rears don't matter too much.

    I've got Ferodo DS2500's & Brembo on the front and are very good.

    If that was a friend of mine he'll drive it until one day his car becomes part of somebody else's rear bumper.

    Definitely get the pads changed and euro got 30% off so even more reason to splash out and change.
