    Go check your pads and youll see they have lots of meat left, the pad warning light is triggered with over 1/3 of pad life left, mine came on in march, 6k ago and theres still loads left, its just another Audi rip off scam, if you can live with the light on do so as apart from the car thinking it needs pads it does not need pads yet.:icon_thumright:

    Greenstuff pads are made for smaller cars so I agree with Tintmaster. Were fine on my Focus, but not for anything bigger. Heard lots of good stuff about the DS2500s, loads of the Octavia guys on Briskoda run them.

    I use EBC Greenstuff on mine and have found them to be fine! They've stood up to some heavy braking!

    Yes GSF for mine as well, Brembo discs and Jurid pads, OEM are actually Jurid (as with most maintenance parts, Audi don't make brake pads).
    I just did the rears and they were about £60 all in, fronts will obviously be more though.

    On my B5 Audi i had GSF cross drilled discs all round, and Pagid fast road pads, total cost was about 150 quid +vat then fitting.

    My B6 is a different story, apparently the discs are different on the B6 so I cannot have cross drilled rears :(

    GSF also say they don't stock the Pagid pads either, I don't understand how much different the dics between two models are, I would have thought they were almost the same?
