    Need to do my rear brakes on the old tank and popped onto www.nextdaybrakes.com to sort some nice Brembos out. Unfortunately it lists 2 discs for my car and the only difference I can see between the 2 is one says "wet" and is twice the price.

    Don't want to order the wrong discs so any help appreciated.

    I see what you mean after looking at the listings..wet weather discs being more expensive. After a google search of Brembo wet weather discs all the links suggest they`re grooved or drilled. So that`ll be your answer it seems.

    even the "cheap" ones are obscene money.

    I wouldnt be paying more than about 15quid a disk.

    When you look at how pathetic the rear calipers are and experience how bad the handbrake is on these cars I'd buy a set of Pagids.

    Yeh exactly, £70 with Audis mental markups added on.

    I just dont buy into fancy disks, its a lump of cast steel, so long as its made by a reasonably well known company it'll be fine.

    You can buy Mintex or similar disks for around £30 a pair, and that company are wanting that for a single disk!
