Hi,

I'm looking for some advise/options for new b8.5 RS5 Front brake disc's.
OEM ones seem to be around £850 - £1000, surely there are better after market options out there, or as good as OEM for less money????

Any advise or links would be appreciated, MOT is due in a couple of weeks and they're needing replaced. .

See ecs tuning they have a great oem replacement, higher spec design and lighter weight as well. On price though, it's an RS5 and brake discs have always been a costly item on any RS model.

Thanks @heylinTTnz

I'l have a look, as you say, RS5 brake disc's appear to be quite expensive.

@SimonRoma thanks for the link, Zimmerman is the only ones I recognise, any idea if they're any good?

Zimmerman in general make very good quality brake rotors, at least in my opinion. I have purchased them for several of my VW & Audi vehicles over the last decade, and never had faults or disappointment. For example I have bought them for Golf MK4, Passat B5.5 and an Audi A5 B8.5. I do assume you are still talking about the "iron" rotors for the RS5, and not the optional carbon fiber ones?
