    i don't see any issue mate, sounds like the R8 pads are interchangeable with the following models...
    RS4
    RS5
    RS6

    removing the sensor wire from the pad should not alter the performance of the brake pad as far as i am aware. i'd just get the snips out and cut it as close to the pad as possible so you don;t even see it and the wires do not get caught on anything...

    that said i am not a qualified mechanic or brake component engineer so anyone who has more experience please feel free to correct me. i had the same issue on one of my cars in the past and dealt with it this way without any issues...

    Do you remember what fitted in Canberra you went to ?

    Northside Euros organised it for me so not sure sorry. If you know Gareth or Reece I’m sure if you give them a bell they can let you know who they used, or if not I’ll ask them next time I see them and update the post.

    removing a sensor wire wont be an issue. Just cut the wires as mentioned above

    My second option is to just buy all new rotors but was thinking if ditching the wave rotors and buy the standard ones being that they are way cheeper for some reason.
    Unless I have to use the wave ?

    Convince me to go wave rotor cause I don’t see any point in it
    Can save $400 on standard rotors
    What is the real benefit with wave ?

    Marginal weight savings. Some people reckon they look ‘cool’...
