Howdy Midwest forum. I'm new to the whole Audi experience. Enjoying it greatly. Bought a 04 A6 2.7T with the S-Line package.It has 19000 miles on it and sounds like the rear brakes are shot. Sort of a grinding sound just started yesterday. I was told the Audi brakes tend to squeek so didn't pay much attention to the "normal" warning signs. Anyone know what rear brakes will cost and a reputible place other than the standard dealers in st.Louis to go. Appreciate any help.

Rear brake pads (ceramic): $40
Place to have it done: My garage ;)

As for the brakes, it isn't a difficult job. I'd go with ceramic brakes to cut down on the dust. I like EBC pads but you could probably throw most anything on there.

I think that is illegal. But "Performance Cartel" does have a nice ring to it :P
