    Opposed to "Standard ones" buying them external... Is there specific dimensions you need to follow or are you just following the reg year etc for guidance.

    Could somebody please post a link for some VAG bog standard ones as there milillions to choose from.


    Thank you.

    If your looking to uprate your pads I would recommend ebc red stuff.
    I have them and they were a great little upgrade if your not going for lcr brembos setup and looking for a bit more bite.

    I did a in-depth guide a while ago back including replacing discs. It'll be somewhere on here. Type my forum name on search function.
    You should find it.....

    Oops... Just realised you meant, which pads to replace with, and not how to replace.

    I went with Black Diamond Predator Pads. I huge improvement over standard pads. Cost me £64.99 for full front set. Decided not to buy cheap pads and discs as they are the only thing that stops your car although mines running a bit mire power that standard.
