Default NEED: Brakes and Rotors All Around

Looks like I need all new brakes and rotors all around. This is my first time doing any mantianence to my Audi S4 B5, so I'm triing to figure out:

1. What are some good sources for online shopping of Audi parts?

2. What is going to be my best bang for a buck in this area? Any suggestions for a daily driver (no track) that wants quality, but a small bank account?!!?

Default Why rotors?

You don't need to replace rotors unless they are less than the minimum specified thickenss.

For street pads I like EBC Green, which can be ordered from Tire Rack. Low dust and easy on rotors.
