    Hello all, have a bit of a problem that I’d like your views upon.

    I have the Neuspeed brake kit fitted to my A3, the discs and pads need replacing, the Neuspeed discs are £165+vat and I haven’t been impressed with them. I was going to put on standard S3/TT 312mm discs which only cost around £70+vat but the garage I take the car to said that the discs wouldn’t be up to the stress the calliper would give them, is this a load of ******** or are the correct?

    The other problem is that the pads that came with the kit were ****, shook like a fecker under breaking, and had to swap them out for Textar ones which only lasted about 8 months.

    Any ideas / suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Uprated TT/S3 disc should be up to the job. I would go for a grooved option to prevent any cracking between holes with any extra heat build up.

    If you go for a decent set of discs, you will have no problems!!
