i'm none too technical when it comes to cars so apologies if what i say doesnt make sense.. :)
on the subject of new brakes , i know i cant even begin to justify the cost of the GT kit, i could possibly stretch for the sport kit (is this what i'd be after: Brembo Sport Drilled Brake Kit AUDI A3 1.8i 20V Turbo 96-> (FD.074.021) for a 1999 A3 1.8t sport, correct?)
but the brembo max discs look more affordable. anyone used these brembo max brake discs before?
on another note, on my car, the brake pads (i assume its the pads?) in the caliper dont seem to be straight/flush, there seems to be a triangular shaped space where it seems like only one edge will make contact with the disc when the brakes are applied. are the pads worn? shouldnt they be rectangular in shape so the entire pad makes contact instead of just one edge?
i'll see if i can get a picture of it, weather dependant and if i have the will to take the wheel off again.
..or would i be better off getting the brake setup from a S3? bigger brakes discs isnt it?
any thoughts? advice?
EDIT: how much should the drilled sport kit cost? the "official" uk brembo dealer website has them at £360 but another site has the same kit for £260, what gives?!
