    Check Adams rotors, you can get all sorts of styles and sizes.

    I have akebono pads and stock rotors. Just about zero brake dust. Feel great to me but I don't drive hard either.

    Akebono does not have front pads for S6/S7

    I recently had Disc Italia Hyper Ceramic pads fitted up to my S6 - OEM rotors/disks have about 5k kms on them.

    I was over the noise and dust from the OEM pads and the early signs with the Disc Italia pads are promising (haven't heard any noise since, albeit I haven't driven very far on them yet).

    @wwhan - I was under the impression I had the same brakes as the s6 being that I have a prestige with the sport package and 14" rotors. My apologies

    No, S6/S7 400mm front brakes are specific to this model and not shared with the A6/A7 range.

    Dang. So we have very limited options. I read about people stepping down to 380mm rotors for better options.

    There is this option from Racing Brake. It's what I plan on using to replace the OEM rotors when the time comes. True two piece, and directional-vaned cooling...neither of which are necessary on the road, unless you're headed downhill for miles.

    After researching this I bought stock rotors via Audiusaparts ($497/pr) and Wearever Gold pads from Advance Auto ($29/fronts). Looking forward to a dust free life.
