    Got that sponge cake for brakes! which brand of Brake Master Cylinder??

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    original seals on my brake master cylinder are leaking to the point that at idle I can put moderate force on brake pedal and it will slowly go down.. What brand of master cylinder would you recommend? is there really a difference in quality? ECS Tuning offers the most options for a ESP equipped S4 at the lowest price..Genuine VW/Audi $276, Lucas-Girling $201 and the ATE $179.. what do you recommend and what has been your experience?? appreciate any n all feedback!

    OE is prob one of those 2, but with the audi rings on it.
    I wouldnt pay $100 for rings
    There are only 2 things needed to make an Audi work properly - Duct tape and WD40. If it moves and it shouldn't - Duct tape. If it doesnít move and it should - WD40.

    Canít go wrong with either brands as both have been the suppliers of master cylinders on various vag cars.

    All the c4 chassis cars are ATE.

    When you buy the part from the OE supplier on our cars you can see ground
    down section from where they left the rings off.
