More Info on Brakes for '90 Coupe Quattro
Per Glen's and RDH's (and others!) suggestions, I have done a modicum of
checking and determined the following:
Doesn't stock Front Rotors for the Coupe Quattro
Doesn't stock Pads (F or F) for the car
Stocks Rear Rotors only at $48.50 ea
2. Called EPE re: Potential for Brake Job
2.1 Tony said that at 57K miles, they *may* be worn beyond minimum
even if pads aren't gone yet, hence may need new rotors
(this is a new concept to me... sigh), but he'd hafta measure...
2.2 But, their price if needs 4 rotors, pads, *everything* would
be about $600... so were down by 25% already!
2.3 They said if'n I could get the rotors/pads elsewhere, they'd still
be happy to do the work.
What are the other Mail Order places which may stock what I'd need?
1. PAP doesn't have it - and said the dealers may be only ones
to carry Front Rotors for 20V Coupe Quattro's - this sounds
weird to me...
2. Shokan(?) What's their number?
Geez, I just can't wait til I need a $50,000 clutch, or a $100,000 valve
job... (just kidding)... but you do hafta wonder...
Thanks for all the responses so far (even yours Bob! - snicker yourself!)
