    Hi All

    I've been noticing over the last few months that my brakes have slowly become less effective and whilst on holiday in the Peak District they started squeaking at low speeds. The discs are probably the originals (she's done 128k!) or have been on for some time at least. The low brake pad warning has now appeared so it's time to do something about it. Has anybody fitted Brembo Max grooved discs to their B6 and if so how do you rate them? I was going to get them from my local GSF as they have them in stock and look to be good price-wise. They've advised to go for Pagid pads - any thoughts? All feedback , good or bad, is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Richard

    That sounds like a good combo TBH. If you are not a crazy driver then these will be much better than standard, not quite track day quality

    Thanks for the thoughts - that pretty much mirrors what I was thinking anyway. Not looking for mega performance as the nearest the motor will be going to a track is the car park at Brands or Thruxton when the BTCC is on! Just wanted to improve my chances of survival on the rural roads getting to and from work!

    Lostbok.

    try this link https://secure.gsfcarparts.com/shop/results.asp

    In case it doesn't work (and it doesn't so go herehttp://www.gsfcarparts.com/ and click on shop and follow the steps) here are the details with the part no's in blue

    60225F BRAKE DISC-BREMBO'MAX' A4 1.8T / 1.9TDi AFN/AJM Engs./ 2.4 / 2.5TDi / 2.6 / 2.8 V6 95> £42.25 + VAT

    64526 DISC PADS-TEXTAR A4 99> (Ch.8D-X-200 001>) PR-1LZ Brake Code +Sensors £41.25 + VAT

    Unfortunately they didn't have the Pagid pads I was going to get but apparently the Textars are the best-sellers at the moment! Should be fitting tomorrow night so hopefully report back sometime next week when they've bedded in. :racer:

    Regards

    Richard

    p.s. GSF seem to be a bit cheaper than here! http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pages/products/category_results.mhtml?category=brembomaxdiscsfront;car=audia4;manufacturer=brembo;sub_category=1
