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.
