    Looking at replacing the brakes on the A8 soon (possibly just fronts - noticed they smell a bit hot when used harshly, also arent as "sharp" as they need to be in a car that size to be honest - rears look fine)

    Now id like better brakes if im honest, where do you go for better brakes?

    Ill be honest its not something i've done for any car before! O_O!

    Any recommendations? I googled and had a brain meltdown haa

    I think you have more chance of getting worthwhile information if you post this in the A8 forum.

    Maybe a friendly moderator will move it for you.

    By better brakes do you mean uprated pads and discs or do you want to fit larger calipers and then larger different discs and pads?

    I just fitted Pagid front and rear pads and discs to mine and they seem to be better than the stock Audi parts. You can get these from Eurocarparts - use discount code chill30 for 30% off

    after trying loads of different disks and pads, I bit the bullet and got proper Audi ones... cost a bit more, but I've found them to be a lot better than others... including ECP ones.
