Genuine Audi parts vs Aftermarket
Audi has performed extensive research to come up with the perfect brake pad material composition for your specific model. Aftermarket brake pads are categorized by the material; semi-metallic, ceramic, carbon-ceramic, etc. Choosing too soft of a brake pad could lead to overheating; too hard and the brake rotors wear pre-maturely. Audi also uses electronic brake pad wear indicators. Did you know not all aftermarket brake pads come with the sensors built-in? Not installing new sensors will cause the low brake pad light to always stay on.
All Audi Genuine parts include a 1 year/20,000km warranty on parts and labour when installed by Audi Durham.
Signs of worn-out brakes
- Low brake pad light comes on – Avg. 15% brake pad material remaining.
- Pulsating when slowing down from highway speeds – Brake rotors are warped.
- Brake rotors show rust lines – Brake pads are not making full contact.
- Brake rotors have a blue tint or dark spots – Overheated.
Why get your brakes done at Audi Durham?
We get it. You can get your brakes installed cheaper, but at what cost?
Did you know Audi Durham offers a discounted hourly labour rate for brakes, tires, and oil changes?
Audi uses electronic parking brakes. If the caliper isn’t retracted back using an appropriate scan tool, the brake caliper can suffer permanent damage. (A new caliper costs $800 plus installation).
Brake caliper bolts are one-time use. Failure to replace and properly torque bolts can cause them to come out which could cause serious damage or worse.
