I have two avants one w/ g60s and one w/ ufos....i personally think the
g60s are a huge downgrade in all aspects of braking....i did not do side
by side braking distance tests so it's just seat of the pants.....

I would track the car w/ the ufos, and if they don't hold up do the
upgrade, not a big market for used ufo components in the usa so give em
a beating and see if they can come back for more!!

taka says they won't.....alot depends on the nut that holds the steering
wheel and track.

I've had a '93 S4 with G60s and EBC Greens for a few years.  They're in
perfect operating condition, fresh bleed with Super Blue.  I don't track

I just bought a '91 200 20v with UFOs in perfect operating condition.
rotors are pretty new and are not warped in the least.  I don't know
the pads are, OEM stock I assume.  Fresh brake job, also with a Super

The difference in braking between the 2 cars is vast.  The 200 is just
fantastic.  I thought the S4 was fine until I drove the 200.  The feel,
strength, and modularity (is that a word?) is so much better in the 200.

I can't attest to fade resistance, but I bet the 200 would beat the S4
