    What does everyone recommend?
    In the past with cars I’ve always got mtec discs and Mintex pads I had ebc red stuff but I fried them so not really a fan of any of what I’ve tried before.

    I’d like grooved and dimpled or drilled for looks

    Can't comment for the A6 but I used Pagid discs and pads on my A3 and got good performance from them. ECP usually have a sale on as well if you want to do it yourself.

    Probably a bit late - but my Mtec discs have been spot on. Grooved and dimpled. Not a fan of drilled - prone to cracks.

    Brembo pads have been a good combo with the Mtec discs.

    Avoid Pagid. Dusty and poor performance. Even had a set wrapped out of the box. That was an interesting return process!

    My weapons of choice at the moment are Brembo discs with EBC Redstuff - they're pretty good! :)
