    Aye Aye folks

    My cars going into the garage on monday for a service 64K (not Audi) their gonna do the timing belt (£150) tensioner and water pump and also take a look at the brakes which do a lot of shuddering under moderate braking with the steering going a wee bit rattley and loose, I suspect the discs and pads are likely to be changed so do you good folks think i should get them replaced with standard ones or pay a tad extra for better? if so which ones and how much xtra are they gonna sting me bearing in mind ive just moved house and living a monk like existence.

    Definetly try non OEM

    I've got the Tarox Sport Japan discs (cross-drilled and grooved) http://www.tarox.com
    + Ferodo DS2500 pads http://www.ferodo.co.uk
    + Original callipers

    Result = better braking and no fading

    I got some Brembo discs from GSF car parts for £70 (both inc VAT) and some Mintex pads.........total came to £100.

    Much less brake dust too!

    Hi S3 Mike,

    Can you post exactly which parts you ordered as I would be very interested in those new pads and discs, think mine are going to need changing soon, did you just do the front or both?

    like the sound of less break dust too... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    Cheers,

    ben.
