Rear Discs - OEM Manufacturer?

Post by lugars4 » Sun Feb 04, 2024 11:11 pm

Any ideas who make the OEM discs for Audi?

I see SHW make some discs for RS6 and have the B7 RS4 discs listed.

Autodoc sell them by SHW at around £700 a pair, but it's better to get them from Reyland Motorsport for £510 a pair in my opinion.

The original discs on mine were made by SHW, and I replaced them with SHW parts from Autodoc late last year.

Fwiw - they are cheaper now than when I bought them. I found the prices changed with stock availability (ended up having to pay ~£100 more for the rhs disk, as my car was already booked in for work so I couldn't wait. A week later was back down to the usual price)..

as stated, Rear OE discs made by SHW:

SHW-ARL48611 right left audi # 8E0 615 601 AB
SHW-ARR48612 rear right audi # 8E0 615 602 D

Audi Price £604.20 EACH inc. vat!

Was originally planning to replace both front & rear sets of discs with OE .. but not really convinced cross-drilled brake discs / rotors is the way to go .. or actually provide any benefit in day to day driving.

When I removed mine, all the cross-drilled holes on all OE discs were pretty much fully blocked, resulting in brake juddering etc.

I personally can't be arsed to keep cleaning the brake disc holes!

so will probably opt for curved grooves from Reyland .. but as yet still procrastinating.. :roll:

Thanks, great info.

Those Reyland kits look great value for these cars. I just wish they did drilled, i personally prefer the look of the oem, but for cost and performance i wouldnt hesitate otherwise.

I don't understand why you or anyone else would go OEM to be honest when you consider the price and performance.
Drilled also have big negatives of brake dust filling the holes, which, unless cleaned out regularly, severely degrades performance.

I opted for the uprated 360mm curved groove rear option from Reyland and couldn't be happier. Not only is the whole kit far cheaper than the OE replacement, you're getting uprated performance in the process. They also fill the rear wheel much better. I always thought the 324mm rears looked a little lost in the rear of the B7.

FWIW I also upgraded the fronts to 380mm in the process and it stops like a different car. Was very underwhelmed with the braking performance when I first jumped in the RS.
