    I always thought aftermarket drilled were best avoided because they were prone to cracking around the holes?

    Are S4 brakes beefier? Maybe source them from feebay or a breakers?

    I think he means the cross-drilled ones from the 2.0T Special Edition. I asked about fitting these, but its not a straight swap as the discs are larger so need different calipers too.

    Not necessarily from the 2.0T, but i have seen some running cross drilled discs on 170's, just wondered if anyone on here had any knowledge of them.

    Cheers Lee, just googled M-tech, they look great, and a good price.

    Any recommendation on pads or would you use MTEC's

    Sold lol, don't suppose you would know the exact dimensions of the 170 discs, Audi said 288mm x 25mm, but i've measured and am sure they are 312 x 25
