    I could be wrong but i think your as well just getting normal good quality disks. I just got a price today for rear disks and pads for my quattro and it was about Ł60 with forrodo pads.

    I wouldnt bother with fancy disks. Its just a lump of steel at the end of the day. Save your money and spend it elsewhere.

    Just buy some decent quality disks from Mintex or Ferodo or similar, and then pads of your choice.

    You could also consider upgrading the lines to goodridge braided ones. It actually makes a hell of a difference in pedal feel. 50 bucks for all corners.Well worth it whilst your in the brake neck of the woods.

    where does them for Ł50 for all round as they seem to want Ł100 plus for a 2000 1.8t quattro

    It was around 150 mark, got the lot from eurocarparts, do a on-line quote as delivery is free. However they use there own van's so you must be in to receive delivery.

    Ref braided lines, here is the link............http://shop.ebay.co.uk/?_from=R40&_t...All-Categories

    The lines I got for my car appear to be considerably cheaper (I have a 2.8 quattro)! You are right the 1.8 lines are more expensive. Wonder why that is?

    I'm pretty sure all quattros run the same lines, front and rear, including the S4!

    I found 2 of the goodrich hoses i recently fitted to craigs S4 to be slightly too long, the ones that go between the subframe and wishbone, were about 10mm longer than the OE hoses we removed, meaning they kinked a little too much for my liking.
