Recommendation for brake pads and rotors?

Default hardware?

I'm ordering new pads and rotors to replace on my 2009 A4 B7 Cabrio. it's got right at 100,000 on it, and it's time. I'll be going with the Akebono Euro Ceramics and Zimmerman rotors. I didn't see it listed in either of these that any new hardware was included such as the rattle clips, new guide pins, etc. ECSTuning has them, but for front and rear hardware, it would be over 200.00 additional. Is everyone just reusing the clips, pins, etc?

i just posted not too long ago about doing my rotors and pads all around. if you dont want high performance parts, i recommend avoiding and getting pads from autozone (lifetime replacement when they wear down = free pads in the future) and i got Callahan brand rotors from amazon, although the price has gone up since i did mine. as far as hardware, you shouldn't need new stuff every time. sadly, its trial and error because you'll need to check the nuts, sliders, shims, and rubber gaskets once you get started. as long as things are cracked or broken, just lube everything necessary and reuse them.
