Hi All,

I want to change the front brake rotors, pads and fluid on my 96 A4 2.6V6 FWD 
(B5 model 8D chassis). I can get the rotors ($100 each) and pads ($50 set) 
from SuperCheap. Just standard stuff I think, is there any pint getting more 
expensive stuff for normal city driving?  (I'm happy to pay for longevity and 
quality, but don't need the high performance stuff).

Is there any special technique for replacing rotors, pads and brake fluid on 
these cars? Do you just take the wheel off, then undo a few more blots, and 
the whole thing comes off?
