I'd look at Autodoc.

https://www.autodoc.co.uk/car-parts/bra ... s6-quattro

There are a few different zimmerman ones. Plain, drilled a bit and drilled to buggery to choose from.

I'm not sure if it's just ECP that are discontinuing them, or if Zimmerman are. However, in addition to autodoc as an option, I've just bought a set for "stock" in from germany:

Landed price was more or less the same as the 50% discount ECP price.

I think they know with the discount and with their overheads they are selling at a loss. I saw the eBay ones and like you say virtually the same price.

What I'd love to do when I get time and the right source material is to see what other discs with the right spacers/adaptors could possibly do the front of the RS6.

I know the Phaeton discs are a good substitute for the rear, but no one has done a cheaper option for the fronts.
When Porsche GT2 discs are cheaper than ours, then you know we are getting our pants pulled down.
