    I need to chaneg the front disks and pads on my 02 S3 (the pad low sign is on and the disks were picked up on the MOT because of a lip).

    Any recommendations please? Audi wanted £358 parts and labour.

    Not much experience on discs and pads on the S3 but the previous owner put Black Diamond on mine. Seem to be holding up quite well so far.

    I like Tarox as a brand though. G88's are very good.

    Thanks for the input. There is no way I would stick cheap alternatives on this car :)

    Changed the fronts on my 02 S3. Bought a set of Mintex Front Pads and Discs for £75 all in and two DIY hours to do the work. They aren't too bad, little brake dust and the same stopping power as previous OEM brakes. Will be looking at uprating the pads at some point probably try Ferodo DS first and then DS2500 thereafter.
