Default Brake Pads ...

Ok, Brake Pad light came on today.

Rang Audi for replacement cost --> 300 fitted.
Kwik Fit --> No real price suggesting it should be around the 100 mark, but making noises about wear sensors may need to be replaced.

Any views?

Avoid Kwik Fit at all costs, had bad experiences with them and brakes in the past.

Wear sensors should be integrated in the '8s pads.

Is that just the fronts or all round?
The last lot of OEM front (D2 S8) pads I had replaced were far from cheap and way over 100 for the parts.
That was at Fontain, not sure on the labour as several other jobs were done at the same time.

D4 front pads are 220-500 from dealer depending on brakes fitted. Some of them come with separate sensor wires( not sensors, just separate connecting wires). Yours must be one of the 2 cheaper options 223 or 231 plus the labour.

Aftermarket pads are under 80 at eurocarparts.

Try these folk for a price

http://www.murraysdirect.co.uk/

Usually only stock good quality German brands - you'll need to ring as their web site is useless except for contact details!

I'm pretty sure that Audi / VAG don't make brake pads

Forgot yours was a D4.. so they're possibly be different... My D2 and D3 are integrated.

And yes, VAG don't make pads, but some of the aftermarket (Pagid being an example), aren't as good as OEM quality.
