I've always regarded stock Audi brakes as not especially brilliant.  I 
certainly wouldn't dream of seriously upping the power without doing something 
about braking.
When the first A4 arrived at BR Motorsport, the engineers test drove it and all 
commented that Audi had 'finally done something' about braking performance.
