    I always thought aftermarket drilled were best avoided because they were prone to cracking around the holes?

    Are S4 brakes beefier? Maybe source them from feebay or a breakers?

    I think he means the cross-drilled ones from the 2.0T Special Edition. I asked about fitting these, but its not a straight swap as the discs are larger so need different calipers too.

    Not necessarily from the 2.0T, but i have seen some running cross drilled discs on 170's, just wondered if anyone on here had any knowledge of them.

    Any recommendation on pads or would you use MTEC's

    Sold lol, don't suppose you would know the exact dimensions of the 170 discs, Audi said 288mm x 25mm, but i've measured and am sure they are 312 x 25 :think:

    Post up your dimensions please as I will probably be going down the same route when replacements are due.

    Thanks.
