    Calling all B8/8.5 S4 owners.. show us ya brakes!

    Fast/hard road use the Macan solution will certainly be fine, track use is perhaps debatable the RS4/5 had bigger discs for a reason and that for me is where the macan option is lacking.the question really is how often will you track it to need the. Jogger disc area? I run yellow stuff with my...

    And it is worth noting there are a LOT of cars running those brakes, brake pad supply isn’t going to be a problem long term.

    With respect to the master cylinder, that is tied to the total piston area and so long as they remain broadly the same the the master cylinder does not need to be changed.

    I paid way less than a grand all in on my brakes and that includes the £250 on brackets I didn’t end up using. Having tested them on track I can confirm they really do the job and weigh less than the standard S4 brakes.

    If there is sufficient water on the road to cause a problem for brake discs it is far more likely you will lose grip from your tyres before braking becomes an issue. drilled/slotted discs are more for pad gas dispersal than anything else.

    water is not an issue for brake disks.

    Discs - Drilled, Slotted or Regular

    I run zimmerman discs front and rear on my S4, though the fronts are upgraded to the b9 Calipers and a6 discs. all groved or drilled discs do for you is allow pad gasses to escape, the results in a less floatly pad feel and slightly firmer braking.

    isn't the S4 box a DSG one and therefore has two clutch packs? could be one is worn more than the other... I am no expert so could be very wide of the mark!
