    I wouldnt think it would really matter. My friend ran a setup of GreenStuff pads with Brembo grooved disc's.

    I wouldnt think there will be much difference between the setups that they have mentioned.

    Did they mention any particular differences. If there are a few options I would usuall ask them what they would recommend or if i have time put a post on here.

    the 4 choices for the early A4's are:
    solid front discs :
    280mm x 15mm lucas brakes usually fitted to 1.9tdi (90bhp) models
    288mm x 13mm ate brakes usuall fitted to 1.6 petrol engined a4's

    vented discs:
    280mm x 25mm lucas brakes early 1.8 non turbo models
    most other models of A4 have the 288mm x 22mm ATE brakes which is the norm for all quattro models.

    you should expect the cost for the fronts to be around £100.00 for good quality standard parts, fitting is easy enough and could save a garage bill o maybe £75 - 100?
