Ive had my S3 now for 3 years, and still find the brakes terrible. Ive "upgraded" to Ferodo DS pads with padgid disks up front, and have standard rear pads and disks. Its has 2 new rear calipers over the last few years as well. Basically I have zero confidence in them. When braking harshly from high speed the car squirms and feels like its snaking. Im doing a track day early next year and have plans with some friends to have a trip to the Nurburgring next year, so I need this sorted by then. Are LCR Brembos any good? They seem to be the next viable option. As for the snaking, I believe Im going to have to upgrade the bushes front and rear, and plan to do this when fitting coilovers next year once the bad weather is out the way. Any help / experience with different set ups is greatly appreciated!
