Default I'd ask over in the A6 forum if you haven't already

But here is some other info that might be of use:

An A8 driver's opinion on brake pads out there
Little FAQ from StopTech regarding pads
Note that all the pads listed above may not necessarily work in your A6, thus why I suggested asking them.

Default I'd been using Mintex Reds on my A6 because of the OEM dust problem; however,

they tend to make a lot more noise. I'm going to try Hawk Performance Cermaics this time. In fact, I just got the pads and new rotors (Brembo OEM plain) in the mail yesterday. I'll be having a brake day coming up soon if you want to join. I bought from ECS Tuning.

Default Be careful with ECS Tuning and your Credit Card. Lots of fraud issues happening and the general

consensus on many forums (not just AW) is that ECS Tuning has either security issues or an employee doing outright fraud.

So watch out in the near future for fraudelent charges against the CC you used with ECS Tuning.

Default Yeah, I read some info about that. Pretty tough to just write them off completely though.

I'm not saying don't be careful, but . . .

I do watch my books carefully.

Oh, and I used a payPal Debit card, so I think there is $10.50 left on the card from my transfer.

Default Well not much difference in price in the world of aftermarket tuners/parts suppliers

So you have to go with customer service. And if ECS is really at fault for this, their CS skills are very lacking.
