    Tuned RS6 C5 (2004) Brake upgrade

    Morning all!

    I have a 2004 RS6 C5, the front brake pad indicator has come on and tbh the discs look pretty shot! Now i've been having a browse an considering the car is not stock (will update my signature asap!) i was thinking about upgrading the brakes. There are a few options, Brembo (3kish), Statsis (2.5k), Ap and UNIT20 do a 390mm upgrade disc but that utilises the OEM caliper (have emailed off a request for for a price), id guess the last option was the least expensive but does anyone have any experience with any of these set ups?

    Cheers in advance

    Sam

    brembo the name says it all
    ap are good
    if you just want to upgrade the discs and pads go for ferodo ds2500 pads or performance friction
    i have used these before on my evo and are very good
    i used these on standard discs the stopping capability is miles better

    Thanks for the reply

    Yeah, brembo are king, but they come in at closer to 4K and thats just the fronts! :| For now discs and pads will probably be my best bet. I will go for a set of the ferodo's as ive seen a few other people enjoying there stopping capabilities and just wait and see what unit 20 say with regards to the disc

    I would say just buy audi rs4 b7 carriers and upgrade the discs to either rs4 stock 2 piece discs or AP Racing/Loba Motorsport 2 piece discs. Loba's discs are lighter and stronger but they use AP discs anyway, it's just the hat and bobbins that are custom made ! Here's my allroad with rs4 b7 brakes- don't be tempted to keep the standard pads, they are just ****e !


    FOR SALE:
    -Golf mk 5/audi a3 1.6 FSI fuel pump, brand new genuine part boxed + seals
    -audi a3 (1998 to 2003) genuine clutch slave cylinder to fit 1.6 engines BRAND NEW
    -Rear bush press tool to fit new rear axle bushes on Golf Mk3/4, Audi a3/S3, Seat Leon/Toledo, Skoda Octavia mk 1/2 used once
