Which vehicle do you have?

Are you looking to increase size, or just stick with stock rear size?

Unfortunately Brembo doesn't offer anything but ATE and Zimmerman (both OEM suppliers) do;

9.6" Zimmerman rear rotor for B6 A4 1.8T Quattro/FWD;
$61/each normally (ATE costs just a bit more)
$49.40/ea your price

I'd recommend either Pagid or Mintex pads;

Pagid rear pad set for B5(B6) A4/S4 2.7T/A6/Passat/TT/Mk4/Mk3
$49.85 normally
$42 your price

Mintex "red box" rear pad set for B5 (B6) A4/S4/A6/TT/Passat/Mk4
$41.90 normally
$36.70 your price

Everything is in stock, ready to ship.

LMK how I can help!

Jeremy, I have a 2004 2.7T Quattro, with stock 17' BBS RC rims, Thinking to go to CH 18 or 19 within 6 months.
My front rotors and pads will soon be due for a change and would like to take this opportunity to upgrade to better brakes. I am told that there is little to do on this model, except one upgrade for over $2k... Find it hard to beleive... Any suggestions?

Also, what do you think of EBC brakes pads (you know... the green stuff for exmaple)? I am tired of all the dust on my wheels.

By better brakes are you only thinking "bigger" brakes?

Have you thought about different rotors, more aggressive pads, SS lines, high temp fluid?

We're not big fans of the EBC's. Pagid OE, Mintex red box, Hawk, Porterfield, or SBS for us.

No track, no autocross.

I use my A6 to commute to work daily but drive very fast on the road, take turns fast, and like going to the mountains some week-ends to enjoy the twisties:).

I would suggest one of the TrackSport kits then.

Jeremy, you metioned not being a fan of EBC. WHy is that? I have never used them, A friend did and it did improve the dust problem, braking wad adequate and fading approved according to him..

Which pads should I go with insted of EBC for my 2.7T to limit dust and improve braking?

As for the track kit, It looks tempting. but at 3K, I need to think about it and look at my other car I was going to upgrade... May have to wait til after the summer. Thanks though.
If I get it form you, do you have recommended instal shops in most areas?

We just haven't been as happy with them as we have with Pagid, Mintex, or Hawk.

Our clients have been happy with the Mintex red box or Hawk HPS.

I could certainly help you find a good install shop in your area.

The Pagid seem to dust the least amount from what I recall.

For rotors, I could look into the availability of Zimmerman x-drilled's.

For SS lines, I'd recommend Goodridge.

For fluid, Motul RBF600.

They only made one set (custom painted set we have on our Avant). They're all silver w/ black Alcon lettering otherwise.
