    New Brake Set Up

    Alright Guys,

    New to the site so thought id start off with my cars first set of mod's

    After having my Audi A4 B7 remapped now running 193.8bhp / 289.7lbft thanks to the lads at stattler in attercliffe, I thought about upgrading my current brake set up

    So i got my self some drilled and grooved discs, which are coated in black so once used the grooves and drill holes will keep the black colour, couple this with some green stuff pads front and rear with nice and shiney painted red calipers and the set up looks quite smart

    Anyway heres the pics,

    Are those MTEC brake discs?

    I had Red Stuff pads and EBC drilled/grooved disc's on my last car which was a Civic Type R, and I hated them. They sounded all grindy and squeeky, especially at low speed braking. I hear lots of good things about the EBC pads though so I was a little confused.

    Yes mate they are MTEC discs.

    Pretty damn good value too, the only thing i dont like about the red stuff pads is that they seem to eat the discs as they are a very harsh pad.

    I have started to notice a little brake fade too, especially when braking from high speed, but this is mainly when they have not been heated up properly.

    I have also upgraded the brake lines with custom made braided lines from Graham Goode and overall the setup is much better than standard, but its like anything after a while you get used to it and want something better.

    Pound for pound, its much cheaper than upgrading the size of the discs or the calipers and the best part is all these discs, pads, lines dont affect my insurance as all they are insterested in is the size of the brakes!
