    I need new front pads and discs for my 2001 Avant, 115bhp diesel.
    SO, do I order OE from local Audi dealer, mail order, Ebay or local motor factor? Who will give the best deal?

    Is there a combination that gives better braking and wear bearing in mind that I tow a trailer (around 500kg) and average 16k miles per year usually in the fast lane but not with the trailer!.

    Your thoughts are welcome

    I wouldn't go to audi, but that is just me. motor factor but specify good branded parts and you will be fine. are you doing the work?

    In the past have always sourced pads/discs from German and Swedish or Euro Car Parts, who supply Zimmerman/ Brembo/ATE discs and Pagid/Jurid pads...
    Recently though was able to get an extremely good deal from my local VW dealer on Genuine pads/discs for front and rear on the A4, (just ask for Passat parts /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif) much cheaper than going to an Audi stealer /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.
    It was interesting to see that the OE brake pads are made by Textar; brakes are now superb....
