    Sounds like she should be in tip-top shape now.

    How much did that set you back, if you don't mind me asking?

    Well, I sourced the front brake set-up and Red Stuff pads (and the tank sender/battery/wipers), and he supplied the rest and fitted it all.

    350 parts

    350 labour

    VAT

    40 for the MOT.....................

    Total 866.

    Feels like a new car again now

    No knocks, no clunks, no beeping bloody dashboard!!!! lol

    Very reasonable I thought.

    And oddly enough, a couple of buildings away is this (the Porsche/Audi specialist)..........http://www.carreraperformance.com/servicing_repairs.htm It would've cost a LOT more there though.

    Yeah, 14".............360mm

    I managed to buy the whole front kit for 40 quid LMAO!!!

    A very light/slow skim and chamfer to the discs by a mate cost 20, and I bought some caliper paint off Ebay..........





    Then some Redstuff pads for 85 delivered from Ebay......



    I've had the RS4 rears on for a while now too.........

    Looking good, but when are you going to get rid of those hideous wheel caps and get some proper Audi ones?

    I find the same. They are not bad when warm but I've had a few '**** your
    pants' moments when cold. I'm basically a cheapskate but will do it properly
    and get Pagid next time.

    Yep, they're SOOOOOOO much better when warmed up, but they still bite better when cold than the hopeless standard S4 brakes

    I might try Pagid next time maybe.

    Which Porsche do you have by the way?

    I used the red stuff as the car is being converted for mainly track use so the cold bite wont be much of a problem,its a 944 turbo and i also have a 944 S2 as well .
