1st off i love my S3, tiz my baby [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif[/img] but the brakes are getting to me now. I have lost confidence in them so..
I have spoken to a local tuners and he has told me unless i am tracking my car there is no point in going for a calliper upgrade and a simple disk and pad upgrade will do a world of good. Will this be the answer to my problems? (this has got me thinking i may track my car now [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif[/img])
I also described what happens when my brakes fade and he was concerned to say the least. I get a loud roar and the pedal goes hard and i have to either stand on them and they work less and less and get louder and louder or get off them use the gears and use them a couple of seconds later. Is this normal? I got this exact same thing with my old cavalier so i just assumed it was normal?
So the options are:
6/8 pot brake upgrade = £1500
Porsche Upgrade = £1200
Brembo = £900
Disk + pad upgrade = £350
All the above are exc VAT
So what do you guys think.
What’s the best to go for?
What’s wrong with my car (if anything)?
