    DrPeter, that brake disk kit looks gorgeous!

    Have you, erm, have you got any spare, or surplus, or ordered incorrectly, or customer didn't collect, or...
    I'll pay the postage!

    but it seems folks are more fond of a straight silicone brake lube,

    As an ex- Volkswagen/Audi/Porsche dealer tech, I never use any lubricants when working with the brakes on these vehicles.

    - - I stand corrected, I do use anti-seize on the pin/bolts that are under the boots on the rear calipers, sorry for the confusion.

    Like these folks show here . . . http://faculty.ccp.edu/faculty/dreed...tbrakepads.htm



    They are not exposed to the atmosphere like smaller pins that hold the brake pads in place, below, I do not use anything there, nor do I lubricate the brake pad backings, just what I do.

    - I wish I had a spare set... lol

    - That was for an Audi S5 with a TTS Super Charger kit.. 600bhp ---> so they definitely needed the stopping power!...

    so it sounds like the important part is to not use that crap (wheel bearing grease) I had on the shelf from 1983
