    A6c6 3.0 tdi front calliper upgrade

    Previous I had a4b7, brakes were fantastic with ss lines. When I bought a6 was a little disappointed because of brakes compared to a4. My pads wear not evently. External pad wear about 20% meanwhile internal worned out. It means that front calliper not effective as it should be. For winter I use 17 RIMS, and do want to change the front calliper on stock 347mm disk. I tried to match with 18z brembo but not enough space in the rim(volk re30). I'm considering about q5 brembo calliper. Should it be ok with my set up? Any ideas?

    Q5 4pot brembo calliper fits directly on 347 mm brake disk. Old lines I replaced with ss. It is night and day difference.

    Since the OEM calipers are single pots, the uneven wear would be due to alignment of the caliper in relation to the rotor.
    Sounds like you may have fixed the issue with new calipers. Keep an eye on the wear. Off it continues, you have a bigger issue.
