Thread: EBC pads - B9 S4, S5, RS4, RS5

    Default EBC pads - B9 S4, S5, RS4, RS5

    EBC UK have just confirmed “we have the front & rear pads for the S4 & RS4 in stock (they are the same pads). We only list the Yellowstuff for these cars but there is a Redstuff version available (these are listed for the A8), I have listed the part numbers below…

    Front pads:
    DP42277R (Yellowstuff)
    DP32277C (Redstuff)

    Rear pads:
    DP42254R (Yellowstuff)
    DP32254C (Redstuff)…"

    The DP32277C (Redstuff) ceramic pad was the part # I was given by another person from EBC when I initially enquired about S4 pads in 2017. The development mule for this pad was EBC UK’s boss’s daily driver S4 sedan.
    So, upon further query he confirmed the same pads suit S4, S5, (not SQ5), Q& & A8 (2017 onward ‘D5’ 3.0 hybrid models).


    Didn’t ask, but if the S4, S5 & RS4 share the same pad, it should follow that the RS5 would also be compatible.
    RDA Brakes are the Aust Distributors.

    Currently have US PowerStop ceramic Z16's which became extremely hot at the recent Audi-Sport Track day @ Norwell, Gold Coast. Whilst they are fine for the road, if one can have ceramic pads with improved stopping power, that is a no-brainer and have emailed RDA for a price.
    Should be a good package with the brand new Michelin PS4S tyres & Goodridge s/steel braided brakelines.

    Further to the previous post and after seeking clarification, an EBC Manager has advised, in part:-
    "We have listed only DP42277R in yellow for all the cars below

    S4, S5, RS4, RS5, Q7, SQ7 & A8

    Yellow is better than red in all eventualities, Cold hot or moving slowly.
    We have not listed red for SUV type cars as it lacks friction if not driving briskly
    We have only listed red on the A8 because these are more luxury type vehicles and maybe most drivers would like the lack of brake dust relative to the yellow on these cars.

    No Porsche uses this latest Audi pad as far as we know so far"

    Bottom line - all these models share the same pad, so effectively are available in Redstuff & Yellowstuff.
