    My A3 was in for a service last week+cam belt/water pump.
    Came back all good, but with a note saying the brake pads are 85% warn, and the disks will need replacing soon.

    So, what are my options, anything aftermarket for around the same money as OEM Audi replacements?
    or do I just go to my local motor factor and change myself for pattern parts.

    If you are going to source pads yourself be careful of fakes. There was a piece on watchdog (I think) about "audi OEM" fakes floating about and how bad they are compared to genuine.
