    Just feeling the breaking on my car and it doesnt seem to be too good at the moment. I want to get some new pads and or break discs. Any ideas anyone? Im only driving a 2.0FSI so doesnt need to be anything too crazy, just nice firm stopping power!

    And todays word from the dictionary is "brake" /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Best you have a look at performance pads first. Ferodo do some good performance pads, DS2500's are suitable for fast road. Not sure what set up the 2.0FSi has but at a guess I'd think its got the 288mm front setup.

    Take them out and hit them with a hammer, that should break your pads.
