So a week ago my wife tells me the dashboard brake light has come on and the message tells her the brakes need to be replaced. Our RS3 has 45k miles on it so Im not shocked by that but the shocker was right around the corner at the dealership. Since the tires needed to be replaced as well, I told them to do both. Tires were about $1300 installed for the 4 which is about what Ive been used to for my S3 and RS3 to date but they called me up to “talk” about the brakes. Apparently they want over $2000 because “the pads on this car are expensive” and the “rotors must be replaced as well”.
Im used to my brake jobs being in the $500-$700 range all around, is this really necessary? Arent there better and more cost effective options than padding Audis pockets for their over priced parts?
Any advice appreciated, pretty agitated atm. Love my car but a surprise $2k bill is not what I need right now.
