Time for a brake job [wrench]
Looking for a great deal on some good quality low dust pads.

The PBR line of pads offer great stopping power with very little brake dust

x1000, great stopping power, quiet, and no more cleaning your rims 100 times a week.

I've been rocking PBR's for 30K(metal masters) and I still have a TON of brake material left. Lots of AuoX and one track day on these pads.

I did NOT get the Ceramics at the time, though I wish I did.

I will next time, or possibly this "season", with a spare set of rotors with Carbotechs.

I've got the PBR ceramics as well, and I've been very happy with them so far. Low dust for sure.

just a heads up, im sure you already know, but the rears you need a caliper compressor. Can't just use a C-clamp. Just a heads up, i learned the hard way and had to rent one from Advanced Auto parts. (which rents them for FREE!! just gotta leave a big deposit!)

X2... I always try to buy from an Audizine vendor whenever possible.

PureMS is one of our top vendor IMO.

ps just noticed the OP is canadian. i dont think they have an option to ship to canada on the site, but they do, just call or email them.

this is the only reason i didnt buy my front pads from them.

PureMS, put a canadian shipping option in your checkout dropdown!

Oh yea, for what it's worth, ALWAYS make sure you use the same compound pad on the front and rear of the vehicle.

If you don't, the car can lose "balance" upon braking.

I had to do the rears before the fronts on my first A4(frontrak). In a straight line (stop box - AutoX) the ass would skid sideways a bit. Trail braking was even worse.

i did not need a caliper compressor, and i did my rear brakes today. i might be screwed about the brake pads not matching up front though lol

For ceramic based compounds our PBR Ultimate Ceramics are a very popular choice.
