I put Repco MetalMasters on my '90 Coupe and have been very pleased. I've
had them on for about 5000 miles, and things seem to be wearing well. I
bought them from Imparts, who stocked the rear, but had to special order the
fronts. The fronts are identical to the S4.
The replacement was very straightforward. If you are just replacing the
pads, the front caliper does not need to come off. Simply remove the lower
bolt, loosen the upper bolt, and swing half of the caliper "up". You may
have to depress the pistons (two of them) to get the new pads in. Bentley
also recommends replacing the bolts.
The rears are a little different. You must remove the caliper, and depress
and turn the piston at the same time. I used some channel locks with tape
on the teeth for this.
I don't recall if there were part numbers on the pads, but I chan check what
was on the box this weekend. If you'd like, I'll post the part number on
BTW, I bought gas slotted front rotors from Sun Spectrum, $190.
