    Need Recommendation *Brakes*

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Looking for any insight or recommendation on higher performing brake pads for the B9 Quattro

    Current dilemma: BBK vs some great pads, already running stainless brake lines.

    I prefer the less expensive alternative.

    TIA

    less expensive would be pads...i think stoptech and brembo already make some no? our cars 4 pot which is pretty decent IMO...

    Completely agree with you, thatís why Iíd rather keep stock setup and just get better pads, maybe better rotors down the line too.

    Will check out Brembo and Stoptech

    Pads will make a difference in brake feel. Rotors will make no difference. Get the slotted if you like the look but they do not make a difference. Stay away from drilled because the rotors tend to crack around the drill holes and the holes offer no advantage.

    Yup, agreed since I track the car I know slotted/dimpled rotors will make a small difference with heat discharge but never drilled. No brembo pads available, going to see about stoptech

    slotted will actually give you better bite but will wear pads a bit quicker.... i'm going that route afterwards :p and i believe stoptech has some..ebc too... well i know it'll come just dont know when

    Agreed, but def going to wear out my OEMs first before getting new/upgrade rotors. No pads with Stoptech or Brembo, Iíll check out EBC.

    Iím hoping theyíre my salvation lol
    otherwise will bankrupt myself getting the RS BBK from Europrice

    yeah same...and no i was told by stoptech they will make it, and ebc told me they are available themselves... theres a set on sale right now not from europrice... but its also carbon ceramic too.. im still maybe a year away so I'm not stressing yet .... Girodisc will custom make light weight 2 piece slotted rotors for me if i can get at least 10 people in for a GB... but it'll run about 800 USD per set... just rotors ... kinda too much but girodisc is very good ...

    How soon are you looking to move forward with Girodisc? I may want to jump on that deal if itís about 6-8 months down from now

    Iíve looked and couldnít find any pads for our b9 just yet. Iíd like to change them for the track. Was hoping Hawk HPS had offerings, but no such luck. So far, only rotor/pad kits Iíve seen were offered from ECS Tuning. Iíll run the stock for now until someone brings us some goodies.

    @Misanorotrs4, which stainless lines did u go with? Feel a big difference in pedal feel?

    I got the ECS stainless lines and they made anhuge difference. Thereís a small squeek from the brake pedal after installation but otherwise great feel.

    true but not necessary if rotors have very little wear, i donít believe in service/maintenance upsells lol.
