Replace Front Brake Pads On 2006 A8L

The brake pads and rotors were replaced by the dealer at 55k miles-It’s 77k miles now and the brake pad warning light just came on. I planned to use the old rotors so I replace it right away to make sure they don’t get destroyed by the pads. This is how I did mine. Turning rotors at Parts House in Fremont only cost $15.

The pads actually are still good for at least a few thousand miles, but I didn’t really want to see the warning lights on the dash board. I got ceramic Power Stop for the front and Bendix for the rear. I do like American Brakes companies.
