Audi A4 (B7) Brake Kit – Fitment, Benefits, and Product Review



► Are your brakes nearing the end of their usable life? This Zimmerman/Akebono front and rear brake kit for your Audi B7 chassis not only replaces your worn out pads and rotors, but offers cost-effective benefits over OEM.

Do you know when it’s time to replace your brakes? Modern cars, like the Audi B7 A4, feature brake pad wear sensors to let you know exactly when they’re due to be replaced using the car’s electronics. However, it’s entirely possible that your brakes may need replacing without your car’s systems warning you. Luckily, diagnosis is relatively simple—you might have already noticed some of the symptoms without knowing what was causing them.

To be clear, when your brake pads are worn and ready to be replaced, you should be warned by your car’s electronics. However, it is possible that your brake pad wear sensors were never replaced, replaced improperly, or there could be a malfunction within one of the car’s systems. For this reason, brake pads are still manufactured with a mechanical indicator that loudly squeals to inform you that they are beyond their usable life.

Your rotors will also make it very apparent when they need replacing. It’s not uncommon to feel strong vibrations or shuddering through the brake pedal, steering wheel, and in extreme cases, the seat of your pants. This happens when your rotors become warped from overheating, or when your brake pads have worn down and leave score marks on the rotor.
