RE: A4Q Brakes

They last until you get tired of cleaning your wheels :-)

Seriously, to me it would be worth it to just get rid of them,
especially if you have already lived with them for several thousand
miles and it still bugs you. In my case, there are no aftermarket pads -
that I've been able to find - for my 91 200qw (UFO brakes), so I'm stuck
with stock or retrofitting the regular 200 brakes at a cost of about
$1,500 (incl. rotors, pads, lines and a substantial part of the front
suspension). I have considered it...
