    just get some ferrodo DS2500 from Bill @ badger 5 not sure on cost though.. as per size you dont need to worry about that if you got stock rear calipers.. just tell the merchant you want 1.8T FWD A3 rear pads :D

    Just go for standard pads unless you track the car! The amount of braking the rears do isn't worth upgrading unless you have updated the fronts first.

    Just get std pads for the rear... Bill normally sells Pagid or Bosch... DS2500's are overkill for the rear (can unbalance the braking bias too) plus they have half the pad material of a std pad (IIRC)

    I used Pagid pads on my last change... DS2500's up front though of course :D
