    Been unable to find a brake disc upgrade (345 x 30) for the above-dont want to go down the road of changing calipers etc etc...just wanted some better front discs and pads so they can cope with the heat a little better for my `enthusiastic` driving style??? any help appreciated:icon_thumright: I read somewhere that one of the S4 models had the same size disc`s but cant seem to find it??? :confused:

    Thanx Sarah...the brakes are standard at the mo, all I`m really after is something like black diamond disc`s or similar & red stuff pads or similar??? I have had a ring around locally and no one lists a dics upgrade??? Just want something to cope with the heat better...prices would be great if you list anything-thanx Wes.

    Hi Mate
    We dont do Black Diamond or EBC
    Would not reccomend red stuff myself
    These are like a race pad and do take time to heat up
    The best ones we do are Tarox , these are excellent quality
    They are heat treated to stat with and they are topped off with the Tarox Strada pads
    These are uprated too
    http://www.awesome-gti.co.uk/tarox/taroxdisc_audi.html
    Hope that helps
    Sarah

    Hi
    I struggled just like you then , sorry I didnt even read the info I put up for you
    Anyway I just call Tarox direct and let them sort it out for us ;)
    They can do the discs :) in the Sport Japan style (drilled and grooved )
    As for the pads , mmmm not as easy I am afraid
    They think they can do them , but they will need a pic of them if you could manage that? Preferably at the side of a ruler
    But we are getting there :D

    Thats great...only thing is I will struggle to get a pic up,certainly quickly anyway as the car is being used pretty much every day at the mo and by the time I get home its too dark to strip\refit again? Would it help if I find the Audi part number for them?:icon_thumright: :happy:
