EBC finally released their front pads for the b9. It was time for some new brakes and disks. I have one of the first b9s. Had a note that this would need to be done soon in November.

I have 318 mm vented disks on the front & 300 mm solids disks on the back. I got the kit which includes pads and disks for the front and back which gives you a better deal. Decided against the groved disks.

Got these at a good price from www.ebcbrakesdirect.com with a 10% discount which was a £38.46 saving. Use code IAM485967 working as of 20/02/20

Would have been £461.58 but got it for £415.43

Looking forward to having these fitted.

@Gazwould I wouldnt have the time to go out and do this now but thanks. Good idea. Did you spray light where the disk would meet the hub? How many miles did you get out of your original discs? Do you have any experience with Redstuff

Seriously I would key them up and white spirit clean and spray .

Doesn't take long at all .

You haven't got time , but you will hate every time you see the rust and wished you had .

Paint is thin on hub , can you see the fade out ?

Replaced rusty discs on a car new to me .

No different to OE , they are not allowed to be as have to be within 15% to gain ECE R 90 status .

Massive brake dust reduction that saw me remove Pagid with 9mm of material left .

Get them hot and breaking is beyond OE .

Brakes & disks bedding in nicely now. Going to get a few miles on them before putting in harder stops to do the final bed in process. (60mph - 5mph) They work good from cold which was a worry of mine. No issues as yet. No brake squeal either. Brake fluid got changed again just to have everything on point.

Fully bedding in now disks and brakes. The Redstuff pads have been silent from day one. My local Indy put brake grease on something that EBC didn’t supply. I would definitely recommend doing some mileage on these before you do the hard brake in. Do about full tank of driving before you initiate the brake in. Don’t do any emergency braking in this period. Do 5 hard stops and allow the brakes to cool before you stop. Don’t stop dead whilst doing the final stage.

I also did a brake fluid change to have everything fresh. Overall very impressed with dust. These brakes are meant to be not so hard on the disks. They say they last longer. Very progressive with good bite. When you put your foot down it’s very impressive and stop on a dime. I don’t get any fade when testing. I would highly recommend these to any b9 owner. Will be fitting these from now on. Can’t rate them enough.

Why did you not take the opportunity to paint the calipers the same colour, at least, to the pads?

Had these one for some time now. No issues. Been one of the best investments & worked out cheaper than oem parts. Less dust. Stops much better with zero fade. Would highly recommend these to any b9 owners.

Hey. I am just looking for replacement to my first set of disks, and second set of pads, all original parts. Audi quoted flipping £1120 far all new, which is crazy in my opinion.
Please could you advise the best way to find out about caliper made & disks diameters?

Had my fronts done a few months ago at my local tyre specialist. Brembo discs and pads fitted inc VAT for £225.
Rears shouldn't be too much more.

@CornishB9 How do you find your new Brembos? Any noticeable difference comparing to your old set?
Well they stop the car, seem a little less dusty and were a lot cheaper than going to a main dealer. Was offered Audi originals, pattern copies and Brembo's. Not a lot of difference in price
