But obviously they have never worked on Audis, nor even seen UFOs.

No one has yet given the best possible advice, IMO.  DIY!  Get familar with
your own brakes.  Most probably you will discover that you do not need new
rotors and maybe not even new pads, but that to gain the full potential of
the UFOs you need a caliper hydraulic overhaul, disassemblly, cleaning and
reassembly, followed by a full fluid change.  A zero cost overhaul, over the
cost of fluid.
