Metal Masters might be fine for lighter cars and on the street, but
it's too weak for track use.  If you want low dust and mostly street
use, a better choice would be Mintex red box.  If you're going to
the track, you will need something more aggressive.

I haven't looked into availability of aftermarket brake pads for the
stock S4 HP2 calipers, but supposedly the choices are somewhat limited...
Others please feel free to chime in.
