Default What rotors on a D4

Hello,

2013 A8 L 4.0T
Looking to replace front and rear rotors with similar to OEM performance at less then OEM prices. I've already purchased EBC red stuff pads for front and rear.

I like the USR and GD offerings from EBC but everywhere I look they are either back ordered "nationally" or overpriced.

Can anyone point me to a good vender or a different matching alternative to the OEMs?

Thank in advance.

I get my rotors from one of this sites sponsors. Blauparts.com There may be a couple of different sizes for your car so you may have to measure the rotor diameter. They are great parts too.

UPDATE.. I did a little looking and Blauparts does not have rotors for your car. Partsgeek is showing Zimmermans for around $80 a pop. I use Zimmerman on my D2 A8 and my 944's. Just as good at the $300 OEM ones..

Thanks for trying. I'd go OEM if they were only $300, but I'm seeing $600 for front and $400 for rears. (Kinda glad I don't have 2 piece RS carbon fiber)
Might go with the zimmermans on the rear. Anyone got a source for aftermarket fronts? W12 is the same rotors as 4.0T right?

i would never spend $300 for a steel rotor when a $70 Zimmerman will perform just fine. Unless you are racing or restoring a car at a Concours Level, under normal driving the Zimmermans are perfectly fine. I've often heard that Zimmerman is an OEM manufacturer for VAG anyway.
