    I am looking at a relatively high-mileage RS4 and am trying to work out what it needs, including whether it needs new discs/pads. I asked the selling Audi dealer whether it did and got the following info in reply:

    Front Brakes:

    - Off Side Disc 34mm (limit 32mm)

    - Off Side Pads 14mm (limit 7mm)

    - Near Side Disc 33.2mm

    - Near Side Pads 14.21

    Rear Brakes

    - Off Side Disc 22mm (limit 20mm)

    - Off Side Pads 14.6mm

    - Near Side Disc 22mm

    - Near Side Pads 14.8mm

    This doesn't mean a whole heap of much to me, but I think I interpret it as meaning:

    - pads are fine.
    - front discs are fine.
    - rear discs need replacing pretty soon.

    So is anyone able to kindly interpret for me exactly how much life that means the brakes have left in them?

    Many thanks!
