Everything you ever wanted to know about Brembo brake discs for the Audi A2 (8Z0)

2/15/2018

The right brake disk for everyone 4 different types of Brembo brake disc, letting you choose exactly the right product for your needs

​Despite its years, you still love your Audi A2 (8Z0) as much as the first day you saw it. You've travelled so far together that the time has come to change the discs and pads to make your braking system as good as new.
Some think that all disks are the same, and that they're made with the same methods and materials, whoever the manufacturer is, but this simply isn't true. While some brands are happy to make the same product for years, others keep re-inventing their products with ever more innovative technology. Brembo has scored hundreds of victories in motor racing over the past 40 years.
Brembo knows everything there is to know about brakes, and has selected 4 different solutions to give your Audi A2 (8Z0) the best braking system possible. Brembo recommends always replacing the brake pads together with the disks. When changing the pads, on the other hand, it is not necessary to change the disks as well.


 

Brembo Original

Brembo offers the ideal solution for your car in the shape of blank brake disks. What sets these disks apart are their undrilled, unslotted rotors, which not only make for a more comfortable driving experience but also minimize pad wear.
While some discs may look the same as those fitted to your Audi A2 (8Z0) in the factory, Brembo discs are actually guaranteed to offer precisely the same performance as the original parts.
Brembo blank rotor brake discs may also boast one or more of the following characteristics.
PVT Pillar Vented Technology: these discs feature a pillar ventilation system, which improves resistance to thermal cracking by 40% compared with vane vented discs.
High Carbon: these brake disks are made with cast iron containing a high percentage of carbon, which significantly reduces brake vibration and squeal.
UV paint treatment: as well as enhancing the looks of the disk, the UV paint process also offers superior corrosion resistance and complete protection for the disk itself.

Brembo Xtra

If you're looking for a more eye-catching, higher performance disc for your Audi A2 (8Z0), then Brembo cross-drilled discs are the perfect choice.
As well as making your car stand out from the crowd with their stylish looks, Brembo Xtra discs boast potent, effective braking performance in all conditions.
The holes drilled into the brake rotor significantly improve pad/disk grip, giving your Audi A2 (8Z0) precise, effective braking power at the start of braking in wet conditions in particular and at high temperatures. The holes also contribute to keeping the braking system at peak performance by scraping the pad and removing accumulated debris. If all these advantages were not already enough, the holes also allow the heat and gas released by the disc cooling system to dissipate more effectively, maximising braking performance.
Not only will you love them but those you meet along the road will too, as they notice the special UV paint finish.

Brembo Max

If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, Brembo has a range of slotted disks offering numerous performance benefits.

The discs of the Brembo Max range deliver outstanding results right from the start of braking.
The slots in the rotor surface of these discs reduce the possibility of pad glazing.

One of the slots in the surface of Brembo Max discs is a wear indicator, letting you know when the minimum permissible disc thickness is reached.
When the disk is excessively worn, this slot disappears to indicate that it's time to replace the disk itself with a new component.

Brembo Sport

Brembo Sport discs are the ideal solution for owners who mix city driving with a more performance-oriented style. Available as either cross-drilled or slotted versions, Brembo Sport disks can withstand even very high temperatures without warping.
To get the best from your new discs, Brembo recommends matching them with pads also from the Brembo Sport range: this will give you exactly the same benefits in terms of durability and comfort as the best road-going discs available today.
If you're wondering how to make your Audi A2 (8Z0) even more special, Brembo already has the answer. The disks of the Sport range have a gold-colored galvanized surface treatment which not only gives them an irresistible look but also protects them against rust.
Fitting new Brembo Sport discs on your Audi A2 (8Z0) is child's play. Each of these discs is made with exactly the same dimensions as the original equipment parts fitted to you Audi A2 (8Z0), making them completely compatible with the standard calipers and wheels.
