    try either:

    Performance Brake Discs, MTEC Brakes, Drilled and Grooved, Drilled, Dimpled and Grooved, Grooved Sport Brake Discs

    or

    :: EBC Brakes Direct Limited ::

    i ran MTECS for years on my R32 and S4, but have just switched to EBCs last week.. both are v good

    I was frantically trying to find my receipts from last year where I replaced my front discs and pads to answer this post and typically can't find it....now I can't remember whether it was the pads or the discs that were Mintex or Brembo... but am almost sure the discs were Mintex vented undrilled and ungrooved.....but the discs only lasted 9 months. Changed them all to Zimmerman coated discs and pads in June and I have been very happy so far with the performance.

    Cheers

    Hi Allan,

    Haha typical that always happens to me. Specially with part numbers I've have written down and then cant find them to give them to some one and find them when i don't need them :laugh: I'll be avoiding mintex sound like a waste of money. Thanks for the feedback mate appreciate it :thumbsup:

    I have just fitted M-Tec dimpled and grooved discs all round with Mintex pads. Early days but the feel is great!

    I wouldn't write off Mintex products all together....I used them before on my other cars and they were great....just don't think they are best choice for the A4 B7's imo.

    Cheers

    Pagid is the same company as Mintex and if they are anything like Pagid, then I would stay away. Squeaks like mad and yes they are put on right with the arrows corresponding with the direct of the wheel rotation.

    I feel like nobody can make pads that actually doesn't squeak. Lol

    I am using Zimmermann pads front and back ( mainly because the supplier had run out of stock of Bigger brands and they were cheaper too ) for a over a couple of months now and they appear to be performing very well....not a squeak have they uttereth! hehehe
