    pfl s4 brake pads

    my car developed a mettalic rattle on the way home which turned out to be one of the outer pads had disintegrated and left the backing plate rattling around
    i need some new pads asap!!, i want some decent fast road stuff but all i can find is yellow stuff to fit my pre facelift s4 brakes
    are they any good? any one know of any better ones (i cant find ds2500 to fit)

    Not much available for those calipers unfortunatley.

    I dont rate EBC, but i do hear people get on ok with yellows.

    Pagid Blue pads IMO if you have to go that route.

    I binned the caliper for the later S4 as I wont use EBC
    there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes!!

    i was wary of EBC, wouldn't touch anything structural they make, their discs are truly sh1te

    I run yellows up front and they are grippy from cold, dont face and have lasted an age, probably 25k ish miles with some pretty hard braking abuse.
