C7 S6 brake pad options

Already after 1200 miles I am done with the standard brake pads and he amount of dust they create.

It seems like replacement options are pretty slim. I've found EBC yellow pad (i;ve used reds in the pads and quite like them but never the yellows) or Ferodo DS2500's which I have also used and love.

Anything else out there? EBC's are £166 the ferodos are £238 so not too bad.

They dont list reds for the s6 just yellows and orange (which are a race only pad)

Having had the ebc yellow I can say safely don't get these they are noisy and honestly quite useless. My stock pads were better

EDC Redstuff, low squeal and low dust.

I can highly recommend. I have them on the S7.

Do you have the part numbers? They don't list anything on their sie for the S6, i know the s6, s7 and rs7 share the same callipers.

Thanks

Fronts were DP32158C
Rears were DP32082C

EBC Catalogue here

These pads also fit Mercedes (with Brembo calipers) so you may find them listed under Mercedes rather than Audi. Also fit different Audi models (S8)

I got mine from eBay :racer:

You can try here just search using the part numbers.

Note that they do not come with wear sensors. I used the original ones.

Also there are anti-vibration pads (stick-on pads). You will need a set of those, however you may be able to reuse the old ones, if you can get them off the old pads without damaging them.

Have a look here Item 12. I ordered the pads through the forum Parts Request service.
