Just installed these Friday and even under light (break in) braking i can feel this setup is far superior to standard (2002 A6 1.8T). i will do a full review after 500 or so miles. The pads are not equipped with wear sensor connections so i obviously twisted and leccy taped old ones just to stop brake pad warning message. Only strange issue is every 20 or so miles my ABS & ESP warning lights come on but go after stopping and restarting engine. Have just this morning cleaned all connectios with RS electrical cleaner so will see how the drive home goes.
