Upgrade the factory Audi R8 brakes or replace worn out pads with premium GiroDisc brake pads. Select from low-dust squeal-free Magic pads or high performance track-oriented Street/Strip pads.
GiroDisc "Magic Pads" are the solution to your squeaky, dusty, expensive factory pads. They have less dust than typical factory pads and much less than typical performance pads. You won't be cleaning your wheels nearly as often. Additionally, they have great initial bite, something most less expensive pads are lacking. The real reason people like these pads so much is that they are the "silver bullet" to brake noise problems. Magic pads are a semi-metallic composition that is easy on the rotors and the wallet. We recommend always replacing pads as a whole car set when switching compounds.
Wiring in the front pad set is included to facilitate use of the factory pad wear sensor system. Simply plug the bullet connectors from the pads into your factory harness and rest assured knowing your pad wear indicator light will function as it should. All magic pads come with our anti-noise shields pre-installed, included in the price.
The GiroDisc S/S or "street/strip" pads represent the ultimate in high performance brake pads. The semi-metallic compound maintains a consistent coefficient of friction from 0 to 1000 degrees making them an ideal option for people that are looking for a dual purpose pad that will work well on both the street and the race track. The formula has very little compressibility ensuring a very firm pedal and immediate bite which has made the S/S pads a favorite among people who autocross and those who demand the most out of their street cars. Inevitably these will dust more than Magic pads however with the addition of anti-noise shims that come on every set of pads they will not make any noise if they are bed in properly.
These are a direct fit for the front and rear of a Audi R8 with iron rotors.
