I've put them on my wife's A4TQ. Was desperate coz the OEMs were
incredibly dirty and suicidal in the rain. The Raybestos emit very
little dust, and have a reasonably good stopping power around town.
They still emit some [grey] dust tho, unlike the Axxis/PBR DeLuxes, but
alas, those do not exist for the single piston A4 and A6.
Oh, the Raybestos squeal too.
