I just got a bid from Audi for new brakes on all four corners for a grand. Ive always done my own brakes but this is the first German car i have owned that i intend to wrench myself. Does anyone know if its just as basic as the american and asian cars or does the "German Engineering" kick in?

Whats it include???? i have a set of from rotors for cheap if you want it... near new with less than 1000 miles on it... bought mine as a set with calipers but only need the calipers. Let me know.

That was just brakes and labor. I need to buy the shop manual and see what it entails to see if i want to do it myself or waste the $500 having Audi do it. Do you know of any downloadable manual?

If you mean replacing the pads and rotors, this might help. I know that this is a DIY for a Touareg, but they have similar/identical brake systems (Brembo). If any thing it should be a good starting point.
