Just an update. I have some pictures of my rotor on Zooomr. If you
want to check out how bad of an A4 owner I am, click here

too harshly. :)

I guess it's time to change them. :) While I was in there, I looked at the rear and they were in pretty bad shape as well. I'm guessing they might be the original pads that were on the car. If so, I sure got my moneys worth!

The final bill was just over $300 and hopefully I'll get them before Friday (holiday shipping) and have them on. I'll let you know how it goes.
> BTW: I ordered from Import Replacement Parts (IRP). ECS wouldn't have had the rotors for another 2 weeks and I can't wait that long.
