    As my car doesnt seem to want to leave me (sell) then i may keep it but even with uprated discs and pads it struggles with the extra 70Hp & 80lbft and really is quite scary breaking down from 100+ on track. I saw another post from a member and he was told to use hp2 brakes. Please could someone explain what these are and the best place to get them. im looking second hand and 2-£300 MAX. plus will 320mm discs be ok for my 17"X7.5" et43 wheels? My car is a saloon btw.

    You need complete brakes off a 3.0 v6 tdi audi a6 2005 on, allroad 2002-2005, 2.0Tfsi 2005-2010,etc.
