Aftermarket F/R rotors, pads, hardware, and sensors now!

Hello, fellow Touareg owners!
Front or Rear Caliper Hardware kits are now stocked at a fraction of the dealer's price!
Front and Rear brake wear sensors are now in stock for immediate delivery at the lowest prices in the market!

I am offering the Italian made front rotors and Wagner Thermo-Quiet pads, all available in 1 to 3 days ex my facility or drop shipped from the factory in various locales cross country.

Two front rotors for any USA spec Touareg and front pads delivered in most states is $260.00 !! ($10 freight surcharge applies in Mountain states and Texas.)

I am offering the Italian made rear rotors and Wagner Thermo-Quiet pads or AIMCO Super Premium pads for $220 delivered nationwide. (Freight surcharge by locale as above.)

V6 or V8 brakes are all at the same price (V10 front pads add $5) - choose the AIMCO Super Premium front pads for a $25 upcharge. All items are fully inspected prior to shipping to insure you get 100% perfect parts!

Pads are available separately, but when these pads wear out, the rotors are designed to go along with them. Wear tolerances on Brembo engineered brake systems are quite tight. If you can feel a noticeable lip at the edge of your rotor, this is probably equal to or more than the one millimeter allowance per facing...

Finally, I have sourced the front and rear caliper hardware parts and am able to offer these at a fraction of the cost for the VW kits, 7L0-698-269 (rear) and 7L0-698-269A (front) - VW asks more than $39 for rear and $59 for front axle kits!! However, my kits contain the same contents, two each pad retention bolt and pad spreader clip (anti-rattle clip) plus locks. These are designed to wearout with the pads and lose spring tension and distort with use/age of the system. Replacement is always a wise choice because the parts must be handled in any event to replace the pads, and also to renew otherwise rusted and scored surfaces... now imagine all this for $15 front and $10 rear per axle kit!!! These prices are offered in part as added incentive to clients who purchase axle brake packages. (Separate sales will be higher).

I have finally secured a direct import source to provide the OE brake wear sensors which need to be replaced with each brake job - they are so fragile! The front sensors are $12 each and the rears are $11 each when purchased with an axle package - now the entire hardware to perform brake service is available at best-in-class prices from our one source!

I have sold quite a number of these kits and folks have agreed that the quality is excellent and the performance is as to be expected for new brakes! (Numerous testimonials are available online) Plus this is a fraction of the dealer's prices...

Contact me for any details or to place any order! Hours 8:30am-5:30pm weekdays or by email anytime!

Italian manufacture front rotors exactly like OEM
Wagner Thermo-Quiet front pads
AIMCO Super Premium front & rear pads

R5 is a breed apart here in North America

Sorry Matthew!

The R5 is a European/non-US spec vehicle. There is no intel on it here and no parts listings. I imagine the Aussie aftermarket can support you best - try your spares houses downunder and see what they can offer.

Good Luck!

Geoff

I drove the R5 for 20 days just recently. The brakes do not compare to the regular Touareg brakes

They are from the Eurovan. I can't confirm part numbers, but they looked just like the ones from my '95 Transporter based Eurovan and the guys from Germany I was with confirmed that the R5 get's Eurovan parts for brakes.

Cheers.

I got rear pads and front rotors from these folks last week. Very prompt shipping, great packaging, good quality stuff and VERY friendly on the phone. So far, dust seems about on par with factory (Pagid) and the rotors felt (As if you can feel the hardness rating of rotors) the same and scratched the same on the hub as the factory. All in all, at 1/2 the price of Brembo or VW, I'm VERY happy. The Touareg is also very happy as evidenced buy the higher pedal action and complete lack of squeel.

Cheers!

Just as a side note, get the sensors ahead of time, or be prepared to tie the ends together. The carbon ends they use were basically glued to the pads and removing them in reusable shape was out of the question. $20 per corner list, I got'em for 40 for the whole set.

Also, clean the pins that hold the pad spring down WELL before trying to remove it if you intend to reuse (No reason not to). It will come out a WHOLE lot easier.

One last tip, when re-inserting the pin, it has a slight bevel on the outside end that will get caught up on the spring, so press the spring down prior to inserting the last inch of the pin.

Hope these help,

Eric

Rear rotors coming - at the port in Italy

Finally, the Italians are coming back to work after winning the World Cup!

So the rear rotors are at the port in Italy awaiting transport to the US and should be here by August 1st.

That's all the news, no pricing yet...

Can't wait to see these boys troop thru the door!!

Thank you all for your continuing support!

Regards,

Geoff

Q - two questions since i know i am going to be odering in a few months...

1. Have the rear rotors arrived yet?

2. What is the differance between the AIMCO Super Premium vs. Wagner Thermo-Quiet pads, i know it's only $25, but noise/squeal is a big problem with the way my wife drives, so what are the benifits to each.

thanks,

Alex

Based upon design and tight minimum thickness tolerances, the answer is an almost certain yes. These rotors are designed to offer only two millimeters of wear surface and if the edge lip created by the pad action feels like it is a millimeter (two faces), then you are already there! (stick your hand through the spokes after the rotor has cooled and feel the edge - you'll know intuitively.)

I understand that VW recommends rotor replacement under all circumstances requiring brake pad replacement, so am a bit surprised that the dealer is only quoting you pads on a vehicle with how many miles? 25K, 30K, 35K +? That is not like the reports I have seen here and elsewhere. Frankly, I would expect the dealer to call you the day of the work and 'extract' your wallet for the additional expense with a report of rotors needed now while doing the job. This unkind tactic is not unusual.

Regards,

Geoff
