    brake pad and disc issue!!!

    Hi guys

    just took my car to quick fit to get brake pads checked this morning as the light came on sunday morning.

    they just phoned and said I need new discs and pad!!! the car has only done 14500 miles. has this happened to anyone else, if so did you get new discs through warranty??

    any help would be great.

    Are these the original brakes? Have you had the 47i6 upgrade?

    Easy to check: the part number on your brake discs should end in '301.B', go check.

    If your brakes have not been upgraded (no 'B' on the brake disc) then that is a 'FREE' upgrade of pads, calipers, and discs.

    GO check previous postings here!

    You may need to go through Audi UK but tell them you have: 1) vibration, 2) poor brake performance in wet conditions, and 3) loud brake squeal in dry conditions.

    However, if you have had the 47i6 upgrade then, at 14500 miles, you need to modulate the braking...

    I'll PM you...

    They will tell you you need discs and pads even if you don't.
