    What’s aggressive street driving?

    Do you have the carbon ceramics?

    I have already done this research for the B9 RS5. At the moment there are no available options specifically designed for the B9 RS5. However, I will let you know that I am working closely with a braking system company to R&D race-spec pads and rotors. It will be a couple more months before it will be revealed, but you can stay tuned to my build thread for the latest updates.

    This will all depend on how hard you are on your brakes. The B9 RS5 pads are VERY soft, hence the excessive brake dust production. For example, I only have 3K miles and have already replaced my original stock pads, but this also includes a weekend of track racing.

    Ceramic different story. Need to check Hawk or Alkobono. Get good street pad. The more aggressive more chance of break noise. Need to find the + 1 stock replacement. See if you like it. If not go up next level.
